We study how the distribution of contact forces, known to behave at small forces as $P(f)\sim f^\theta_f$, affects the stability and the vibrational properties of hard sphere glasses. As the jamming transition is approached we predict (i) the density of states $D(\omega)\sim \omega^a$ where $a=(\theta_f-1)/(3+\theta_f)$ and $\omega$ is the frequency, (ii) the shear modulus $\mu\sim (\phi_c-\phi)^-b $ where $b=(4+2\theta_f)/(3+\theta_f)$ and $\phi$ is the packing fraction and (iii) the mean square displacement $\langle \delta R^2\rangle\sim (\phi_c-\phi)^\kappa$, where $\kappa=2-2/(3+\theta_f)$. We test numerically (i) and provide data supporting that $\theta_f\approx 0.17$ independently of the system preparation in two and three dimensions, leading to $\kappa\approx1.37, a \approx -0.26$, and $b \approx 1.37$. Relation (iii) was previously unnoticed but appears to be satisfied in a recent replica calculation in infinite dimension, supporting that this approach captures some vibrational effects very precisely. However, our analysis supports that small and infinite dimension behave differently.
