Replacing front oxygen sensors on 1998 Mustang V6

I'm getting a lot of ODB codes that lead me to think the 02 sensors are bad. 1171, 1130, 0131, and a couple others I can't remember. Plus the car is running really rich. So I'm trying to replace them.

I jacked the car up and took a look. How on earth do I get the old ones out? There's not much room on the right side to get a tool in there. I'm not sure if the o2 sensor socket will fit. The left is easier but the sensor is right next to a flange for the exhaust. I've got some (blurry) pics if anyone wants to see them.

Does anyone have advice on how to remove these? The local shop wants $100 in labor for both which isn't too bad. Beats spending hours ripping up my knuckles and getting grease on my face rounding off the bolts.
