front wheel problems (u joint, ball joint etc)

Hey i was checkin my wheel/axle to make sure everythign was good.
First off there is grease coming out the top of the ball joint and underneath it is covered in grease... whats with that?

When i started shaking things.. if i grab the Rotor disc by itself it moves a LOT. I can wigggle it back and forth, up and down, the brake caliper moves aroudn with it.. is that normal?
looking behing the rotor the u joint seems to twitch a tiny bit as well..
any suggestions?

95 yj 6" lift, 34" truxs mts

2005 WK Limited 5.7L Hemi. 2" day star lift awaiting tires and wheels for installation.
