The stock shift lever has a rubber core that surrounds the center shaft. This dampens a lot of the vibration and noise. When you install and aftermarket SS, it's normal for it to be louder and vibrate more. The shifter should feel tighter and more precise. I can't think of a wrong way to install a SS, so if you have no leftover parts it's probably fine.
