Rusted oil pan - back four bolts

As far as I can see it seem impossible without raising the engine.
Hope I'm not right.

I would like to have a last information if possible.
If I ever have to lift the engine a couple on inches, do I really have to unbolt the exhaust headers like Chilton's says or is there enough play in the exhaust system to take it ?
And if Shawn is reading this, what kind of swivel did you use exactly for the back corner bolts? Swivel socket or swivel extension? I mean was the swivel part right next to the bolt or otherwise. I'm preparing to do this at the cottage and since there's only one car I wont be able to go the store to get extra tools :x

Remember to put antiseize compound on the threads of the"new" bolts that will be used to install the new pan. I say new, cause if you're gonna go through this headache might as well do it right for the next time! These bolts can be purchased at a local ACE hardware stores. Also, try to use sockets instead of screwdriver bits. I haven't done this on mine so I dunno if this is possible. Sockets just provide more torque, which also means more chances of the bolt head shearing off. If the bolt looks rusty, then spraying some penetrating oil couple of days before might (or not) help out things!
