perhaps vice versa (wideband screams rich whenever I give it gas), fuel filter was new 3 years ago and a grand total of 5k miles.

I did however get pointed to a source that says the 1137/1157 codes are set by the downstream sensors. so upstreams flag right, downstreams flag lean. Widebands all over and usually rich, I guess I should buck up and buy $100 worth of motorcraft o2's upstreams.
