Thanks for the picture.  I can see that there isn't an oil seal where I thought one would go which would be on the outer side of the bushing in the knuckle spindle.

The swivel housing grease is getting past that bushing and seeping through the splines and into the hub.  Is this what is supposed to happen?  Anyone?

No thats not what is supposed to happen. Have you checked your diff breather to make sure it is venting.
My guess is it's not, which has forced diff oil through your axle seals into your steering knuckle and beyond.
