its damp I guess but where the track bar is bolted to the driver side of the frame is where its literaly driping off of, If I get to the bosses house in the morn I will get a couple picks if its leaking still, seams to do it more when cold.

Really, the only place for coolant to leak on that side is from the degas bottle. Ever had it out or moved before for an FICM repair? Seen a lot of them crack around the nipple on the bottom of the tank.
