Default Dark Grey Grease Splattered On Driver Side

Just like the title says, I got dark grey grease splattered on the driver side on the car behind the wheel cover. I noticed it when I replaced the tranny mount a couple of days ago.

My question is what else could it be besides the CV Axle? What else has dark grey grease like that? The pattern did look circular like it did have something to do with a part spinning. The axle would be it right?

I am also getting a humming noise coming from the driver door it seems like but it could be maybe the part messed up resonating.

The brand I got was master pro and it had a lifetime warranty but now that I think about it, do I really want to remove that part and wait for them to send me another one. Im sure thats how it works.

Im pretty sure its the axle I highly doubt the power steering or anything else would have some grey grease like that.

A new duralast axle would be $60 but I really dont want to do this again. Is this a common issue with cheap axles? Do I have to pay $500 for the OEM one?

It's an axle. Has nothing to do with cheap or expensive. It could be not mounted correctly, road conditions, bumps, pothole, etc... many causes and reasons. Replace it or have it inspected by a mechanic asap.

Dam that sucks because I recently did that and I'll just have to do it again.

Im sure I did the job right I guess that road could have messed it up or its a defect part. Regardless I gotta do it the job before it gets worse.
