05 V8 o2 sensor difficulty?

I've reached over 150,000 miles and I've finally got the code. I've purchased 4 sensors but looked up and saw how hard they are to get to. I've done most repairs myself, how in the hell do you reach these?

They are easy with the right tools, buy a crows foot style O2 sensor socket and remove the plastic engine covers, remove the bulkhead (fire wall) it's a 3 piece held together with 10pm bolts and t30 torx bolts and you will easily reach the top 02s, the downstream you crawl under the car and do.
