The only thing that could cause it is a misfiring engine. The engine shakes so the whole car shakes. You'll have to keep looking for the cause of the misfire, it clearly wasn't just the plugs/wires.

I jumped the gun on saying it is a misfire, you could just have a really rough idle.

Check the brake booster check valve.
