Question 98 Taurus, How Do I Remove the Dual Converter Y-Pipe?

I have a 98 Taurus SE (Duratec Engine) with one of those dual converter Y-Pipes that retail over 600.00. Where the two pipes are connected by a piece of steel, there is a big crack all along that piece of steel on the lower pipe. I need to get it off off the car so I can weld that crack shut again and save about 1000.00 in parts and labor. But I can't seem to get to some of the bolts and O2 sensors that are tucked way up in there.

Is there a special tool, or a trick, that will make it easier for me? My Haynes manual isn't very helpful with that sort of thing.

taking the bumper off can help a little, but other than that it's simply a job of wiggling and finding a proper wrench extension.
