If it is hypoid gear oil leaking, it would be the axle seal where the axle penetrates the diffferential housing. If it is grease, probably the hub leaking. You have to pull the axle shafts and carrier to change the front axle seals so if the hubs need replacing, would be a good time to do it all. Might as well do the front pinion seal while it is apart also, but the pinion seal can be changed independantly without disassembling the axle portions of it.

If its leaking on the "C" and lower ball joint area, that would be an axle seal leak and the inner seal at the housing and axle tube needs replaced.
