Bearing Grease?

TL;DR: there is grease around the bearing. Is it a leak?

Hey everybody, I'm the proud owner of a 2021 TRD ORP. Leveled with Bilstein 5100s set at 1.75 up front and one inch spacer in rear around 12K miles. Currently at 35K miles. I previously owned a 2013 TE, as well as a 2017 TRD ORP. I have put many many miles on these rigs. My 2021 has had a steering wheel shake basically since I purchased it, varying between 55 to 70 mph.

As soon as I got it I took my rims from the previous vehicle and put them on this one. FN FX Pros with e-rated Nitto Ridge Grapplers. I started having the vibration at highway speeds immediately. This was not an issue with these wheels on previous rig.

Thinking it was a balancing issue I had it in and out of the shop several times of course Road forced balanced by two different shops. Just couldn't fix it. Then I put Yokohama geolander on there. Same issue. Now I have the gunmetal gray TRD rims with P rated Falkens, same issue...

So I'm going down the list trying to get this fixed. Had the tires road force balanced two times now. Went and got an alignment a couple days ago; It's spot on. Swapped out the front rotors today, still shaking. But while I was in there I noticed some grease buildup around the wheel bearing unit. Passenger side has a little more than the driver side. My question, is this normal? Or do you think there's a leak? Bearings are on the list of potential causes of the shake, so they may be next on the list to get swapped out. Appreciate your input. Thanks!

Watching "Eric the Car Guy" youtube recently on 4Runner wheel bearing replacement. The one he was doing was pretty shot, but he said it does not cause a shake, unbalance causes shake, failed wheel bearings do not. I can't speak to him, being right or wrong.

Rebalance and check for high spots. I found one on my Ridge Grappler (one out 4 had high spot and caused shake at highway speed). All of my tires balanced perfectly but Discount Tire worker noticed high spot wobble when he looked at still spinning tire in balancer, also road force balance shows it on the monitor in bright red. I don't know why it was ignored 2 times before when they tested it. Replaced the culprit and shake is gone.

Thanks for the response. Maybe I'll take it to another shop that does road Force and explain the situation. See if they can fix it.
