4.0 #5 cylinder misfire

My 2001 grand cherokee misses on #5 cyl throughout rpm range. I changed plugs, coil pack and cam position sensor. Still misses.
It makes a ticking noise and I'm wondering if I have a broken valve spring.

Is it just throwing the code or is it doing anything mechanically?

many times i have seen the #5 or 6 cam lobes wear causing misfires and lifter noise.if the fuel and ignition system check ok it may be the cam .you can also do a leakdown test and rule out any other valvetrain or ring issues.
