Default Idle problem

Howdy. I have a 1996 ranger with around 74,000 miles. it starts and runs fine, but it does not like to idle. it will idle down real low after idling for about 30 seconds and it has even stalled out on me several times. It keeps throwing two codes, "bank 1 running lean" and "bank 2 running lean". i cleaned the entire air intake system and the idle air control and replaced the spark plugs, plug wires, and fuel filter. any thoughts?

Check for a vacuum leak, I read somewhere that lean codes in the banks means you have a vacuum leak somewhere.
