    Ok so you have an 8.1 V8, what are the symptoms? Why is the mechanic saying to replace valve seals?

    Get the compression checked and have a leak down test done.
    This should tell you if you have a valve issue.
    The repair manual for your truck should give compression numbers and leak down times.
