Wow, you replaced the injector and computer? The two least likely and most expensive parts first? A compression and leakdown test should have come right after plugs, wires and ign coil.

Hard to start, runs rough. hard idle. truck shakes when idling

Check the resistance of the plug wires, the gap on the spark plugs along with their condition and check the primary and secondary resistance of the coil. Willing to bet you have 2-3 plugs not firing due to gap or bad wires.
