Is this bad or will I be fine?

Ok.. So I was looking around under my truck last night for something and just happened to notice a couple spots on my front suspension that looked like they might be leaking or seeping... Anyhow.. Not sure if this is bad or not or if Ill be fine. I installed an OME lift and LR UCAs a couple months ago.

Your tie rods and LCA ball joints are leaking. You need to inspect the boots for cracks. You also need to inspect both for play.

When the grease runs out the parts will wear quickly. While these 05+ trucks rarely have a catastrophic issue with failure of those parts it is something you need to keep an eye on. When they wear enough failure could cause them to separate. If they are worn it can also cause you to feel slop in the steering wheel and your may feel your tires bouncing slightly from side to side. This play can eventually cause uneven wear on your tires.

See here for my replacement thread http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/sus...ml#post3691540

The tie rods are very simple to swap out. I recommend going with Moog because they have zerks so you can keep them greased and also flush out the old grease.

I would just replace, they aren't too expensive if yo do it yourself. Its a pretty easy job if you've done any work on trucks before.

My guess is they are probably cracked... thats why they are leaking.
