Default 2002 3.0... strange exhaust leak(s)???

To start, I'm not a master mechanic, but I'm pretty handy with cars, but this one has me confused.

My 3.0 has 2 chambers on the Y pipe, they look like cat's, but maybe I'm wrong... either way, after putting the truck in the air, it seems like my exhaust leak is coming from behind the heatshields on the [cats] on the Y pipe.

The leak goes away mostly once she warms up. It does not appear to be coming from the manifold to Y pipe gasket or anywhere else... AM I CRAZY?
