Well, First i would have replaced all of the spark plugs and the wires, Then moved to the cap or rotor second, but in that case, did you check the spark plugs and wires, when was the last time they were changed? Maybe they were changed already and that's why you when straight to the distro? Is there a computer code for a misfire, or it feels like a misfire when it's running?

Distributor cap and rotor location on chevy silverado


Most chevy 5.3 do not use a cap and rotor. Most have single coil per spark plug and wire. Trace spark plug wires to coil usually above the valve cover.
