Oreo cookies and bearing grease

I have the 92' Ford Ranger XLT with 2.9 V6. I have two or three pending small auto repair projects. I am going to repack my front bearings for the first time also. Both the bearings and auto locking hub parts are combined on the spindle.

I've already been reading up and studying on this. You know those Oreo cookie packages with the slots for the cookies? I think I am going to use this to keep the parts in the correct order sequence for re-install.

I know the bearings might need replacing. But is there a hardware kit to replace the other parts that sit on the spindle, if needed? Or do you generally re-use most of those parts?

I've always reused all the parts. You can set the pieces on a rag or whatever in the order they come out if that helps you keep the sequence right. Unless there is a broken piece I'll only replace the bearings if needed.
