axle shafts

While looking for what is causing a vibration from 55 to60 mph in an 83 300d i loosened the boot on the iner cv joint to check it and oil ran out ,should they have grease or oil for lube ? also rh axle has approx 100 thousands end play could this be what is causing the vibration ?

The grease in that version axle shaft is somewhat a liquid when they are new.
IS this a "new" vibration or has it been there all along?
