Exhaust Leak 5.9 durango

02 Durango R/T with 5.9 engine has developed an exhaust leak on right side rear. I ave to remove a lot of stuff to check any farther. Is this a known problem with the 5.9 engine? The connection to the Y pipe is ok, no leaks. Let me know if this is a common thing please.

Check the flange between the exhaust manifold and pipe. There are two bolts, one on each side of the flange. Over time they tend to corrode away causing a leak. Cut these bolts and replace with new ones.
