Question Coolant leak on passenger side above a/c comp...

What are potential leak spots on the passenger side above the a/c compressor on a 4.6L? I see coolant weeping down slightly and it's leaving a trail on the back and side of the compressor as well as the swaybar.
The level doesn't seem to be going down yet, and there is no spots on the driveway. I did check to see if the block heater was on that side but it's not, and the water pump and front of engine are dry. I looked at the crossover tube (dry) and even got in there with a mirror and couldn't see anything

That's what I'm starting to think
I'm going to bring it in this week and have it pressure tested as no one rents/loans that tool around here...
Any more ideas/suggestions are welcome please!
