Noisy lifter fix???

I have a 2000 Ram Sport with 5.9 with only 58000 miles. Sounds like one of my lifters is Ticking and wondering if there was any easy way to determine what is causing this. I already tried the five minute oil flush didnt help. Is this a common problem? seems kinda soon for a lifter to be making noise. are the rockers and adjustable? any help would be great thanks

I hear it at idle and under normal driving conditions. do the injectors make noise sometimes too?

if a tick per say gets so loud u need to turn the stereo up then yes u have a problem and need to pin point where its coming from .... use a stethascope or even a long pipe and listen around the intake .
