    Try these for some info:
    http://www.obd-codes.com/p0420 and http://www.obd-codes.com/p0430

    I have an 03 with the 5.3L and get the bank 1 & 2 lean codes. I bought a cheap code reader so that I could read the codes and erase them. I found that deleting the codes worked for a while, but these would come back if the outside temp dropped below 32F.

    When you replaced all those parts, did you clear the codes? If you didn't, then the codes could still be there.

    Disconnect the battery and touch the end pos and neg cable ends together for 30-60 seconds. This will fully discharge the ecm causing it to fully reset. This will clear all of the codes and cause it to relearn.
