Lots of Grease

I was giving the generator a once over and decided to look around underneath the coach and this is what I found.

Please excuse my ignorance

I know its the steering components just not sure what I am looking at. Photo's attached....

I first noticed a blob of grease on the bushing which seemed strange....followed it upwards and it looks like maybe it came from above.

As always any replies are appreciated

In this case " A LOT OF GREASE" is better then no grease. Not sure but I think it is the ball joints on the steering links.

Not going to hurt anything, other than collect a lot of dirt. Whomever has been greasing just hasn't been wiping off excess grease.

Looks ok to me. If your talking about a blob of grease around the rubber boot, from my past experience older rubber boots leak out mostly from adding too much grease then a blob pops out. I would just grease it, then wipe off any grease that blobbed out, unless you want to replace all those joints. I would not. Grease until it starts to squeeze out some, look to see if the new grease come out, wipe off, be done. I hope I'm in the right department, LOL.

Looks like someone may have put a little to much grease in zert fitting, would not worry.

The prosses of greasing most, but not all, greasable items is to flush out the old, water and dirt contaminated, grease by pumping in new fresh grease.

Whoever did yours may have overdone it and didn't wipe up the excess.

There are some sealed tie rod ends that don't get flushed. The grease is added until the boot feels full. Can't tell if yours are that type, because of the excess grease. Wipe it off and take another picture.
