Sounds like I have the exact same problem. There is fluid leaking out of my front differential where it connects to the front drive shaft. I also have a very loud vibration/hum when on the highway, ONLY when coasting. There is also a clicking when turning at low speeds - I have replaced both CVs and it did not make a difference.
I am pretty certain it's the front pinion bearing. Do you have any idea of the labor involved in this replacement?
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
