First verify plug wires you might have one crossed. get a wiring diagram and check each wire from the cap to the plug , cyl 1 to cyl1 ect. it is very easy to cross one. make sure the wires are on the cap correctly, make sure the cap is on correctly. any part store will give you a tune up print out showing cyl location plug wire timing ect. then you want to check everything is plugged in from vacuum lines to tps to mass air to map sensors . the car ran fine before this so its simple just retrace and look closely i bet there is 2 plug wires crossed or something is unplugged. just do one wire at a time from the cap to cyl. make sure your going the right way on cap. just get the tune up print out and retrace each wire.

Idle rough in gear

Definitely the plugs too. If the wires are many years old, good to change them. If they are the original wires, definitely change them.
Also new gas filter, and new air filter.

Did you replace the plugs with the same plugs (Manufacturer) as the plugs you had in there. Some cars are very picky with plugs. ie: some Japanese cars will only run well with NGK Spark Plugs. Try to use only what Subaru recommends in your engine for the best performance.

Car idles rough in park also runs rough in overdrive

Sometimes a rough idle like that is a fuel filter. As you've already done the plugs and wires the fuel filter would be my next bet.

Engine is idling roughly

If the plugs and plug wires were changed start there. Most times out of ten something happened to the wires. Maybe one of them isn't on all the way. I've already bought plug wires and there was a bad one in the bunch. If two or more wires are too close together they could be letting the spark jump from wire to wire. The rough idle you are noticing is most likely a miss in the firing order and a dead cylinder could be your next problem. I do not recommend running the engine like this for long. Start retracing the steps of the last service.
