Well, the zerks fell out a few of them and I assume filled up with water and other debris. After that, driving for a bit would cause them to creak very loud when I turned the wheel. So yeah they were shot. Noise went away when I replaced them. Oh and the zerks I replaced once but always kept coming unscrewed and falling out.

Here’s a video of them creaking.

Ok yea I think they are brass bushings instead of plastic like stock so if anything gets in there it's not good. I will put some thread locker on mine. Thanks for the info.
