Hey guys, my forester was experiencing some clicking noises on sharp left turns when accelerating. I thought maybe it was the CV axles, so I went under to check them out. The CV axle boots were good, but I did see that grease was coming out of the top of the outer tie rod boot on both ends. The boots don't seem to be torn. This is a 2015 Forester with about 70k. I'm not sure if it was always like this, but they are the original tie rods. Is this excess grease that worked its way out or is something wrong? I guess the CV axle could still be bad without any tears to the boot, since I don't think an outer tie rod would making clicking noises on a turn? Thanks.
