I would recommend 3.73s, I had them and they were a nice change from the 3.08s. They were also very very comfortable for street driving. As for your shift points, a stock 95 4.6 is just making noise past approx. 4700 rpm anyway. My 4v is set to shift at that rpm.
Some people seem to have luck with the 93 mark shaft, others do not. Mine was fine with the 3.73s. The stocker was tolerable with 3.73s, but far from perfect. I haven't driven past 70 mph with the 4.30s yet though, I don't expect good results.
Balancing a stock two piece shaft probably won't help. The biggest factors are its length, diameter, and rigidity. It is like a jump rope flailing around under your car. At its next harmonic (resonant frequency) it is like two jump ropes with a node in the middle.
