Default Tie Rod End Question

In September I replaced a tie rod end.
The new tie rod end is the greasable kind.

I was under my PT the other day touching up some rust spots when I noticed some grease coming out of the tie rod end.

Is this normal?

I have barely driven it 60 miles since I put the new tie rod end on.

Any input is most appreciated.

Thanks.

Wow! First time I have noticed that.
I have not changed too many tie rod ends.

Here the grease seems to be coming out of the sides.
Is that normal too?


Thanks for the answer

You did grease it after installing it, right?
At first you'll always have a little grease seeping from under the boot. If you wish, just wipe it off.

Thanks for the answer.

Yes I did grease it right after installation.

I will wipe off the excess as you suggest.

I did not realize it would leak out so much.
How often should I re-grease it?
