If you didn't replace the wires chances are your pulling on them could have made the bad wire worse. One way to test wires is to get a spray bottle for windows or what ever and put water in it. Then spray the heck out of the ignition wires all over and see if that makes your miss appear at idle.

Also I don't recall if this motor has a distributor or coil pack.

Also buy some fuel SYSTEM cleaner use that with a tank of gas.

no distributor on 4.8L V8 chevy, coil packs one per cylinder, they do go bad ( I just changed one in my 2000 K2500 Suburban 6.0L engine ) they are about $ 40 a piece.
But check wires first, chek engine light should be on, have codes read they will let you know which cylinder is misfiring.
Pull codes for free at your local autoparts store.
