So......... greased all my zerks and learned that all my joints are leaking grease. Definitely need new tie rod ends. They seems to hold up fine but the covers are destroyed garbage. pitman/idler arms are also leaking. Please note I did not force too much grease into the joints. I only applied 1 squeeze and grease was coming out the covers.2000 Silverado 5.3L Z71 4x4: K&N air filter:great:

I would not be too concerned about this grease coming out. all this means is you will need to grease these more often. where I live in the north east rust belt every 3-4 months a hit of grease. in california perhaps once/twice a year.
don't screw around with those tie rods because if they are worn get new ones. the other parts can have a little slop in them with no quick failures. tie rods are more of a problem. when they get loose they rapidly wear down and will pop off.
