MYSTERY OIL LEAK. HELP!!!!!!!!

I have been trying to trace this leak out for days and cannot find it for the life of me. Its on the drivers side only and is running down the frame rail. Everything on the engine seems to be dry but all the stuff under the brake booster is soaked! I am not loosing any brake fluid so I kinda ruled that out. The only thing I can find it might be is there is a tube that connects behind the master cylinder to the booster near the fire wall that is soaked but I still am not convinced that is where it is coming from. Any ideas????

I didnt think about the power steering. The fluid was low, not even on the dipstick, but it didnt "look" low. Here are some pictures though: These are taken from the bottom looking up at the bottom of the master cylinder

It's that PS line leaking. There is a seal on it IIRC, but you should probably replace the whole thing

What is "IIRC"? And which line? The silver one at the top right of the third pic?

You don't need the whole line. There is a service message or Tsb to repl just the short section of line to the booster
