Front leak w/ picture

I've had this leak slowly developing and until recently I've noticed it more. After about 8 hours i notice a small 2" puddle of what looks like oil. I attached a picture to show where you can see the frame is wet from the leak. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas as to what this could be?

Hard to tell from the pic... looks like it could be from the steering rack too. Is the fluid red at all?

well the easy test says to catch some fluid in a glass jar and check the color/smell AND monitor all fluids, one stars to drain and there you go.
