How would the front wheel shaft be leaking grease when the boot is not cracked? on 2002 Buick Century

I see grease thrown everywhere but no obvious place it is coming from. Where do i start?

If it is a greenish-color grease is it probably coming out of the intermediate shaft or cv joint boot on the halfshaft. The boots don't have to be cracked. If a clamp that is supposed to be holding it in place is missing the rotation can spin the grease out and it will spray all in this area.
