Default MOOG LBJ's Rusting

Ive noticed the top part of my new MOOG Lower Ball Joints got some surface rust. I was told they do that. Its just on the crown nut area on the tie rod end side. Is that something to worry about or?

Most Moog steering parts rust. Doesn't effect the functionality of the part though. You should be fine.

I'd leave it. I know it looks ugly but it's still in good shape. At least it's under the car and can't be seen by the public. No worries.
