Drive Line question.

Rear drive line where it connects to the rear Diff, looks like it is throwing out grease.

That normal ?

Thank you for helping me out ...

Next question is..
if the U joint is bad would it cause the jeep to make a grinding ( not quite right) sound when i went up hill?

Bad U joints make a squeaking/chirping sound when driving along with a clunk followed by a small ping when first taking off.
