Default rear 2 exh. manifold bolts, rusted/broken at nuts

i have an 03 ram 65k on it. and mid last year i noticed an exhaust leak, it got worse. well i fixed it a couple of weeks ago. and found on the pass. side exh. manifold that the 2 rear bolts were broken right at the the nut! wtf!

installed a new gasket and all NEW bolts, no more ticking! yeah! just a nice clean rumble through the magnaflow out back

Glad you figured it out. Do you know why the bolts were broken? Any clue?
