2007 LBZ oil leak

2007 LBZ oil leak, I did not take a picture yet, but when looking into the passenger side wheel well, I can see the oil leaking down the side by the shock. I have at least one plate size spot on the garage floor in the morning and the oil is not dark, very light in color.

Looking for answers as to what it might be.

Brake fluid maybe. Have you gotten on your hands and knees and looked around? Working from a pretty vague description...

Got underneath yesterday evening for a quick look around, could not really see where the leak is coming from, opened the hood and look around as well, could not see or feel anything. Checked oil level, it is fine.

Going to take the inner fender shroud off and have a look. Just had the 4.5" BDS lift installed, not sure if that would create something.

Unless you just changed your oil, light color would not be engine oil. How is your brake reservoir?
