Oil Leak (front of motor)

Title says it all... I started seeing a speckeling of oil spots about the size of a dime or less where I park at work and home. I finally decided to look under it and found that the track bar and other stuff near by is coated in oil.

I was hoping to end my oil leaks when I sold the 7.3 guess not.

After I change the oil and fuel filters its going back to the dealer to have it looked at... Any thoughts on where it may be coming from?
