Why is my car so weird? Need some info on weird tranny leak.

Ok so I was driving on I95 and my car started vibrating weird it was enough to get my attention so I just thought to myself it was a rough road patch. So traffic was slowing down so I down shifted and the car shook bad on decel so I knew that wasn't the road so I pulled over to the slow lane and gave it gas which it shook aggressively so ok I figured it was my axles finally giving out.

I made it home and jacked up the car and noticed tranny fluid on the ground, again probably the axles so when I looked the tranny oil isn't leaking from the axle but in the wheel well. It wasn't a lot of oil but still. Can anybody please tell me what they think this is?

My boy Joe or as some of you know him as ItalianJoe told be based on the pic that its just the axle but I would like a second opinion as well cuz it doesn't really make much sense to me I circled where its leaking from and where its dripping to in case you guys don't know where to look.

Transaxle seals may be bad?

I would honestly just take it to a Michel tire and have them check out the transaxle seals. That's what my ion looked like and the problem was the transaxle seals leaking fluid.

That leak looks like it is coming up higher yet? Either getting flung up there or is leaking higher up. Looks like engine oil to me. The axle grease is a heavy sticky shit, and should fricken reak to high heaven. Grab and try to pull apart the boots and if its torn you answered your own question.

Edit, I just saw that last pic where the grease is slung in the back side of the rail, looks like you are due for a new set, try these
