Leak front axle, problem?

First picture doesn't show it is leaking, second shows grease or oil coming out of it by the u joint. I have been having grinding issues coming from the "wheels" whenever I brake or are am in a slow roll. Could that be bearing issues?

Would the leaking cause the grinding?

I wonder if I need to replace the bearing and the seal? Bad bearings would cause grinding?

I thought maybe it was rotor issues since shortly after getting the grinding from the wheels, they started to wobble! Like another person posted, I had wobbles from 45-55 mph. I changed the rotors, brakes, calipers, hardware, brake hoses (thought they were collapsing) and bled the brakes. After all said and done, I'm still getting the grinding. What could my next option be?
