Default 88 Accord clunks then dumps?

Daughters 88-89 accord dropped parts (ceramic & metal?) from under passenger
side wheel, lots of oil also, I really no nothing about hondas. Could it be
cv joint or boot? Its always made lots of creaking noise on that side when
turning or going over bumps or dips. Gonna have it towed tommorrow. Luckly
she was just pulling out of the driveway. Unluckly have big oil spot.

88 Accord 4 door
automatic
80,000 miles

Oil? Maybe transmission broke? Maybe brake fluid, if it's wheel bearing,
suspension, etc.

Is the "oil" red? Clear? Black?

My guess would be leaking brake fluid. One easy way to find out if it is
brake fluid would be to check the brake fluid level.
