Tie Rod Problems

I think I may have a problem with my tie rod ends. They are not loose and the truck doesn't pull to one side or the other but something just doesn't look right. Maybe y'all can look at it and tell me what you think. I have not hit anything either.

This is the passenger side it looks like it is slanted more as you can see in the photo.



This is the drivers side it doesn't look anything like the other one.

It's just rotated, no big deal. But yeah, it looks a little overgreased. The seal is a little swollen due to the amount of grease.
