Hub replacement?

I was painting my calipers today and noticed a decent amount of play in my rear hubs, more so on the passengers side. Anyways, I was able to move the bolts back and forth about 1/4" without the rotor moving, is that a good indication that they need changing?

I was also trying to find replacement parts for them but can't seem to find just a "stock" replacement. I found a bunch that have different offsets, but without knowing the stock offset the numbers don't do me any good.

Any help would be appreciated guy, thanks!

umm...I'd say thats just the free play in the differential...but I think 1/4" is a bit more than there would be...interesting fact if you didn't know your axles don't fly out thanks to a couple of C clips :P

I'm hearing a knocking sounds coming from back there when I'm turning and slowing down which is the reason I looked in the first place. Nothing else seemed to be out of whack.

Garage
The knocking sound when turning is the limited slip. They tend to clunk in slow turns.
The free play is perfectly normal.
The rear doesn't have hubs, it has axles that connect to the differential via splines
