Green or yellow-green ooze near moving parts is almost always associated with bushings that are not happy. As most bushings wear out the brass bushing component is worn away and mixed with teh factory applied lubricant. As the brass oxidized it turns a greenish color. depending on the lubricant its mixing into that can result in a discharge ranging from an off-yellow to green. The reason its being squeezed out is that the volume of lubricant is increasing as the brass becomes suspended in the lube and then the brass oxidizes (reacts with and incorporates oxygen and water) and increases in volume some more, eventually exceeding the capacity of the area its supposed to stay in...

The remedy is to replace the worn components.
