The only other thing I can think of that you're missing is the seal/bearing that sits inside the spindle to support the axle shaft

that's alot of shit to do - hope ya got a torch/cut off wheel

Yep, x2 - and, if you've got the diff off you may want to look into the C clip eliminator for the pass side axle - it makes it so you can get the whole axle out instead of leaving the stub shaft in it.....
