Hopefully someone can help me out with this,
I have 94 Mustang GT and here recently its been having issues with misfiring. I noticed a slight misfire so i changed my plugs and wires. now when it idles, the mis firing became worse. so figuring that maybe it was a bad wire i switched back over to the old wires. now it "vibrates" all the time and its driving me insane!!! can someone help me out??

Vibration may mean the harmonic balance has gone south. Check to see if there is any rubber protruding from the HB on the engine side and/or a wobble.

Your best bet for plugs are copper core style. You didn't say what plugs you used. Recheck the plug wiring to make sure they are all seated and in the correct order.

I do suspect you may have more than one issue.

Before spending a ton of money chasing hunches buy a OBDI code reader for about $22.00. You really need to be able to see what the computer is sensing to properly diagnose electrical issues.

Misfire is accompanied by a loud "pop" from the exhaust and a drop in RPM. More than likely it is the harmonic balancer. Does the shake go away when you give it a little gas at idle? The rubber piece doesn't have to be protruding to cause a shake. (my rubber piece wasn't showing when mine went out.)
Look under the hood while its idling. If the harmonic balancer is moving ANY other direction besides spinning, you have found the problem.
