Default Please help me!!!

I have a 96 ram 1500 4x4. I just got the truck a couple weeks ago. Its has about 205xxx miles on a 5.2 and a 5spd. When i got it it wouldnt go over 3000 rpm in any gear or nuetral, but it didnt have any exhaust on it. Now ive had a brand new exhaust on it for a little over a week and it started doing it again. Except now it also dies sitting at idle after 15 to 30 seconds of starting it. It has new O2 sensors on the front and back of the cat but uts throwing a code for the front o2 sensor already. I took it out of the cat and it didnt die. Does anyone know what would be causing this to happen, or why the sensor went bad already? Ive already tried cleaning the IAC valve and the throttle body, and ive checked all the vacuum lines. It makes a loud noise when it dies that sounds like a vacuum leak but its really hard to tell the difference because its got a tb spacer and k&n filter. Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks.
