Default upper manifold removal

Attempting to change spark plugs and wires on a 2001 Limited.
Once un-bolted and disconnected from EGR tube, is it possible to rotate the upper manifold out of the way without removing all of the sensor connections? Some of them are refusing to come off and I don't want to break them.

Yes! I've had to pivot the upper manifold out of the way (Not for plugs, though I do need them) and I was able to get enough room to completely remove the valve cover, so it'll be more than enough room for you to do plugs and wires! Don't forget to mark which points on the ignition coil go to which cylinder, and never, never never change plugs on a hot or even warm engine! Good luck!
