Leak down pittman arm and a clunk from drivers side

Hey guys, After a brutally cold winter, and its still cold, I am starting to look into some of the issues that are getting worse as it warms up.

Something I noticed awhile ago is a small leak, it looks like it is coming straight down the pittman arm/shaft, could a seal be out of the housing somewhere or pump? I need take the truck on a 450 mile round trip this weekend and would like to know what is going on with this, the power steering seems to be doing weird things at idle too, like no assist.

Also, I haven't been able to pin point the sound of a clunk that I am getting from the drivers side front of the truck, when I am turning into a driveway or out for that matter, the right wheel has a clunk or binding sound to it that is not pleasant. It also sometimes makes a similar sound under hard braking.

The Truck is lifted with 6" fabtech lift and I've put quite a few miles on the lift, it also has dual stabilizers.

Any help would be appreciated, I likely wont have time to get everything fixed before this trip I have to go on but I would like to know what to look for just incase something happens.
