Default Front end advise needed..

Ok well to start off I was going to get into the front end, just was not first on the list. Sometimes it feels like it is "pushing" the front, the steering always feels loose, and when you hit a large bump going more then about 45 the truck will shake and bounce like a super ball in a paint shaker.
Well I took it to work today, first time I drove it more that a couple miles from home. When i got to work I sat on the edge of the seat looking at the front wheel and spring and wiggled the steering wheel. What I saw was scary. The entire front axle moves side to side about an inch before the wheels start to turn. Now as scary at it seems I am thinking that it is worn out bushings, joints and track bar ends. Now I have never messed with this type of front end setup before so I hope someone will jump in and tell me how to take on the job of redoing the entire front end. Thank You, Shaun
