Question 97 ranger front wheel axle issues

Hello all, i just picked up a 97 ranger 4.0 5 speed for 500$. Yes its a little beat up, but runs great. I am looking at replacing everything I need to for the front passenger wheel bearing because right now the axle is literally just flopping around in there and nothing is supporting it so it just makes a bunch of clunking noises while driving. I just wanted to see if anyone has some sort of list of all the parts I will need to get prior to me taking it all apart. I want to replace everything to include hubs, rotors, wheel bearing, spindle bearing, etc...everything in there is shot and just needs replaced.

This is what is wrong.
