The old school way is to drop the drive shaft, paint or mark one side of the yoke for reassembly reasons and then do the following.

1.There should be snap clips on the bearing caps. Remove them.
2. Find a socket which just barely fits the cap size. Then positon the joint with support on the bottom side leaving the bottom cap free to be driven out.
3. Drive out the joint by striking on top of the socket against the bearing cap. Repeat.
4. Observe for differences in the cap size between the "A' pair and "B" pair of caps.
5. Gently drive in the new parts, retaining clips
and observe paint marks for reassembly.
6. You want the same painted side of the driveshaft to line up as original to maintain balance.
7. Tighten and reinstall.

Contact between brake caliper and disc brake on Ford f350 possible ujoint problem or ball joints some up and down movement in hub when wheel is removed

Since you mentioned U-joint, I'll assume you're talking about a 4x4 F350 front wheel. I am not that familiar with the F350 4x4, but if the rotor is touching the brake components (and you have good pads), the problem is not the ball joints or the u-joint. It is most likely the wheel bearings.
And if it's touching the caliper or anchor bracket, the bearings are pretty bad.
Jack the wheel off the ground. Grab the top and bottom of the tire, and see if there is any "play" in and out to the truck. There should be virtually no play. If not convinced, check the other side for comparison.
