Default U-joint replacement..... arggghh

I put new shocks on my plow truck today, noticed that there is about 1" of play in the front axleshafts when turned. It appears to me that the bearings are gone from the caps and the "stub" is just flopping back and forth on both u-joints pass. side.

So, I guess this weekend the entire front end gets gone thru. All new u-joints, ball-joints and inner axle bearings.
