Pls identify these parts 1996 XJ

could you kindly tell me the name of the two leaking parts in the pic from front suspension on my 1996 XJ and the best brand and place to order them from?

Thank you.

Looks like a tie rod and an axle seal

The axle seal should probably be addressed. The tie rod is just from over greasing or a ruptured boot. Neither is a huge issue to worry about until the joint fails.

Sent from my phone where correct grammar is difficult.

95' XJ Country - Stock Skids - D30/D35 Limited Slip - 3" Lift - 31x10.50R15 - 4.0 HO - AX15 - NP231

98' XJ Classic - D30/C8.25 - 4.5" RC Lift - 33x12.50R15 - 4.0 HO - AW4 - NP231

To fix the axle seal involves pulling the entire carrier out - not exactly hard, but parts need to be put back at proper torque and in the same place they came from (bearing caps etc.)

That axle-shaft Ujoint looks old and crusty. If you're pulling the diff apart to fix a leaky seal, you should take the time to also toss in a new set of ujoints on both sides.
