Coolant leak waterpump?

alright the coolant leak is pretty steady not gushing but it's a constant quick drip, is it the water pump or could it be something else? It's dripping right down the pully but i cant see the bottom of the waterpump to tell for sure.

Start at the thermostat housing. They are stamped steel and rust and fail frequently. I replaced mine with a billet one.

Probley the pumps weep hole. Not to bad to change. Just remove fan shroud and belt and fan. Its a o-ring not a gasket so that makes it nice. DIY and save about 400 to 600 bones. Let us no how it goes.

Its the water pump. And even if its not, do it anyway. Just do it all at once. That way its all fixed and you wont have to REDO it in a few months. Also consider going with ELC coolant on the refill.
