Replace front U joints.

I apologize if this has been asked before but I couldn't find it after a quick 10 minute search.

How do I replace the U Joints in the front axle by the wheels? I have a clicking coming the front of my jeep when I turn and the drivers side has some play in it. Is it a hard fix? Anything else I should look at while I'm at it? Should I just go through and do all of the U joints? Part numbers or brands I should look for?

need to pull the wheels, brake hardware, then unbolt and remove the hub unit bearing. if it hasn't been done in a long time, now would be a good time to also replace those unit bearings since you've got to remove them anyway.

start WELL in advance (like a week or more) with a few cans of PB Blaster and spray all the bearing bolts as well as the axle u-joints to make disassembly a bit easier when you go to do it.
