Do these look worn to you?

I think these are the ball joints? It the front passenger side. Do they look worn to you? The drivers side does not have any white on them.

The white is just the color of the grease seal that keeps the grease on the needle bearings.. Most seals are black. About the only to tell if they are worn is to dissemble and inspect. Or (worst case) they fall apart.
