I am having an oil leak on the ouside of the passengers side rear end out by the tire. As I am not very familiar with indepedent rear suspension I wonder if anyone can give me any advise on what it is & how to fix it. I tried a search but didn't find any answer. I looked a behind the rear wheel but I saw nothing. I get a few drops on the driveway but not all the time. The boot for the CV joint looks OK no tears.

The differential lives in the middle so that's not it. I vote for a leaking shock.

If it just got warm there and you have a full tank of gas (or close) could just be your gas tank overflow tube. It comes out right behind the tire and heat causing the gas to expand could be the culprit.
