Default Rough Idle...

Hey guys had a question for anyone who has experience having a rough idle with there trucks. I have a 96' slt with the 5.2,auto. 2 wheel drive and has started a rough idle when sitting at a redlight but when I go to neutral it smooths out. The needle goes up and down a little when in gear and its idling and can feel truck shaking a little. I went trail riding over the weekend and got a little too deep into water so Im thinking maybe its water somewhere or maybe the coil pack going out the reason I say coil pack is because it feels like its missing but when I get it up to speed it runs smooth with no popping like if it was missing.Kinda hoping that someone on here has had the same issue and has figured it out. Im not a mechanic but can do a little I cant afford for this thing to brake down so any help would be a big help ! thanks for any input in advance.

for a simple check id say take ur cap off and see what kind of shape its in?? maybe its holding the moisture in the cap but if its smoothin out in neutral id say an electrical problem so id have to think about that one a bit.
Is it throwing any codes?

Thats kinda what I'm thinking yesterday I changed the upstream 02 sensor,new air filter cleaned the throttle body and iac and cleaned out the gunk where it bolts in at.Changed tranny fluid and filter and with doing that It made a good difference with the Idle.Before I did all that the check engine light was on and after I was done I disconnected the terminals to get it to shut off and drove to work today with it off but on the ride home it came back on.My abs light had been on too so maybe it has something to do with that.I hav'nt hooked it to a scanner yet for a code reading but I think this weekend Ill get it somewhere and get it looked at.

not sure bout the rough idle, but the abs light dont have anything to do with the check engine light, since you disconnected the battery and it came back i would get it scaned (should be able to do it free at a local auto parts store)
