no, I've had no problems with rocks getting in them. also keep in mind if you don't have them, they do change the spacing of the unit bearing. the thickness of them is factored into the unit bearing spacing, such that the axle shaft u-joint rotates about the center line of the ball joints.

theres really no reason to remove them...
