Default Clicking & Leak

The clicking is the first sign that the UV-joint is shot. And judging from the red rust on the UV-joint I would bet on it. Try wiggling the drive axle in four different directions. It should not wiggle at all. Replaced mine twice, once at 85,000 and again at 148,000, most cannot be lubed. Local mechanic (non-dealership) replaced them for $65 each time.

The axle seal is leaking, suggest you have a mechanic replace it at the same time.
