Hemi Tick 2014 Ram 1500

Hello, I am new to the forum I own a 2014 Ram 1500 i recently went over the 100,000 mile mark. I have started hearing the Hemi tick and suspect it is the exhaust bolts. Has anyone here had any luck replacing gasket/bolts and had any luck with longevity with that. I have heard that replacing the factory exhaust manifolds with shortie headers has solved the problem but i am a little bit hesitant before i make a move. I have owned Plymouths(1971 and 1974 satellites) and Dodge Trucks(1984 250) in the past and always had issues with factory exhaust manifolds warping. Any advice/past experiences would be greatly appreciated.

The bolts are likely loose or broken in the rear corners. The real fix because they warp is to get new manifolds and gaskets and bolts or get shorty headers and gaskets and bolts.

Had the same issue with our 05 Durango and my sons 14 Ram. In the Durango the rear bolts just snapped off. But they were easy to change out. Just had to drop the manifold to get channel locks on the remainder of the bolt. On my 03 I changed to headers before I had any issues. Same with my now 05.
