I've only had two gear sets in Mustangs. Stock and 4.10. They're stock when I buy them, then I install 4.10s. Are the shifts quick? Yes. Top speed lowered.... not so much.... why would you be running 140+ mph any way?

Some like 3.73... probably more so than my love for 4.10s. Just my opinion.... not much reason in changing from 3.27 to 3.73. Again, just my opinion; it's not the gospel.

If the vibration was only evident after the 4.10 installation either the gear backlash or pinion pre-load is incorrect. Ratios dont create noise or vibration, improper installation and set up does.

Wait until you get the 410's you will be even more disapointed.

how well would the 4.10 gears work in a 5spd would the shifts be too quick?
Autos need 4.10s because of their high first gear ratio. Manual transmissions are a different beast. For some people first gear is too short, for others its not. There are gear threads on this forum all the time. While some people love 4.10s, others have actually hated them enough to take them out.

I believe you should pick the gear that best fits how you use the car. I'm running 3.73s which I believe is the perfect gear for my car.

LOL I hope I wasnt being a smart ass, Its just that in the last 12 months I have been through 3 different superchargers upgrading, 3 different gear ratios, and 3 motor swaps so I was flashing back to one of my swaps thinking yup he isnt going to be able to tell that big of a difference.

I took it as smart ass. As you are well familiar I am one..... so I tend to take things in that manner when they aren't.
