I've broken a couple studs...2 on the Cobalt and a couple on another car. Recommended is 100ft lbs I believe...it's in your manual if you look through the index.
I still just do it without my torque wrench...I have a nice Crafstman one and have only used it once or twice for tranny work on my old Saturn.
The vibrating can be caused by multiple things...lug nuts too tight, brake rotors being bad, alignment, or those little clips (which you said you removed). How do your pads and rotors look?
