I have the same issue with mine.
Might be o2 sensor on either banks or catalytic converter. Common problem for GE.
There's 2 ways to do this.

1st was like what you said, change o2 sensor for the 2 banks. (300 plus each if I remembered).
But that might not rectify the problem and you gotta change the catalytic converter (1K +/-)

2nd way is to bypass the ecu, you can check with Fong Kim/Paya Ubi.

There's a 3rd and most budget way though, hard reset by removing the car battery connector for a few minutes and then back on. (or OBD reader from your mech or purchase to erase error codes)
Maintaining your car on cruising highway at 2k RPM and above helps to prevent the check light on.
It can delay it from happening, but if slow cruising around 1.5k RPM will trigger the light-on earlier.
I can't guarantee the check engine light for the abv method of driving helps, but it does for my GE.

Hope this info helps :)
