gear oil on my front wheel

I noticed gear oil on my front passenger side tire. Incidently it is the left side as the vehicle is a rhd. It appears to be the oil that the swivel ball is in. I know generally after the factory oil starts to leak out the rule of thumb is to put grease in there to lubricate. Anybodies thoughts?

check the axle breathers, I have been running the lucas stabilizer and it seems to have slowed the leaks

Given the leak is on the LH side of the truck, are you sure it is gear oil? I know that gear oil has the signature smell but I had to ask just in case!
