Which vacuum line to add seafoam? Slight ticking noise...

I plan on changing my oil sometime this week, so I figured I might as well add some seafoam to my oil+vacuum lines a few days prior. I know you're supposed to add some directly into the engine via the oil fill cap, however I'm not sure which vacuum line you feed it into?

I've been having a slight ticking noise at idle and I've heard that seafoaming might help with it possibly. It's an 03 Wrangler X 4.0L with 63,8XX miles...

Let us know if the tick clears up. Not sure which line to use.

I usually just bypass the vacuum line all together and put it directly into the throttle body. Just do little amounts at a time or you'll choke the Jeep out. Also be ready for a cloud of smoke once you're done. I usually do half a bottle directly into the intake and put the other half in my fuel tank. Hopefully your tick goes away, good luck.
