SOURCE: 96 firebird is having problems,
Have you ran a diagnotic check to see what codes are coming up?
Throwing parts at the problem will get expensive. It will also ruin other parts (Like your catalytic converter), when your engine is misfiring and not running properly. Your vehicle is an OBDII system, fix the problems in the order they appear (then clear, run and recheck)...meaning, one problem can cause another and so on. Fixing one problem may correct the other ones too.
You may get lucky with the shotgun approach, but usually not.
Run a diagnostic test, at least you'll know where to start looking for the problem.

I just had this fixed on my suby today. The cause is that the spark plugs, go through the valve covers on the 2.5 l .When the o rings in the cover go, the result is oil in the spark plugs. The cost of the repair in Canada was about $500 including diagnostics as well as new plugs and wires About 1.5 hours labor and new seals and gaskets. It now runs like new. This is a common problem for this subaru engine as well as for the dodge neon.

Yes bad plugs/ worn plugs /oiled up plugs/ or HTleads with spark jumping will all cause the engine to run rough,and not idle and when it does it runs rough enough to break the engine mounts.
When its dark at night start the engine and look under the bonnet do you see sparks jumping if yes replace the worn parts if no then check plugs and if light grey there ok /if black through away.
So check it out and let me know how you get on . Ron
