I would jack up the rear of the car, remove the bumper and turbo and lower the back of the motor about 7" onto a jackstand and do it with the engine in the car.

It's easy that way... just sit on the ground behind the car and work on the chain cases - they will be right in front of you.
If it was rockershaft seals oil would be dripping from the bottm edge of the cam towers, not the chain cases.

You probably have a leak at the triangular rounded paper gasket that goes between the cam tower and the round cam thrust plate, the oring that goes around the thrust plate and seals it to the chain case, or from one of the blobs of JB weld type epoxy that should be smeared over the end of the thick shaft the chain tensioner runs on where it is pressed into the back side of the chain case.
