rear view mirror shaky????

just a quick question here. I just installed a backup camera with a monitor in the rearview mirror, its the kind that mounts over your factory mirror. is there a way for my a tighten up the factory mirror to keep it from shaking while driving? i guess the extra weight is just a little too much.

I dunno on the 6.4s but on every other rearview mirrorthat I can think of) theres a allen head set screw that will need to be tightened down to keep it from shakin and stuff.

What I've always done, is installed some weather stripping between the factory mirror and the aftermarket one. Then what I did was zip tied the aftermarket mirror to the factory mirror and pull it snug. The mirror I had had four slots to slip little zip ties threw and you could not see them unless you looked behind the mirror. Cut all the of the shaking out.
