ball joints do need greased, but usually only if they are replaced, if theyve been on there for awhile, you may want to think about replacing them.

as far as tie-rod ends go, they do go bad, I have a bad pitman arm and its gay, I drive down the road and my truck will slightly veer one way or another, but there is no gap in the steering wheel.
