UnKnown Sludge Leak.. Need opinions on Location

I already know that there is a slight tear in my right rear axle boot which is slinging a small amount of black sludge on the right rear of my underbody..

but ive been trying to track down this leak of the same substance on the left side also.. i have checked my boots and they are all good but some sludge is ending up on the bottom rear of my bumper and also inside the wheel well. my best guess is the pick with the most of the black substance right next to my sway bushings. i cant figure it out someone?

second pic is in the front part of the wheel well..
3rd pic is the place where i think alot of the grease it but not sure if its a spot where grease can leak from.. 3rd pic center upper part of the pic the darker tint is all the crap

besides those 3 spots i cant find it leaking anywhere else
