engine shaking??!

hi, ill start from the beginning lol, i went to kwik-fit 2 days ago to get a ball joint replaced, they said it was connected to suspension arm so they replaced that, and also done the tracking. (70)
as soon as i drove it away i was getting a shake when reaching 40mph+, the shaking seemed to settle at around 70mph, also the car seemed to 'jump' when pulling away and braking.
went back the next day as i needed new shock absorber and top suspension mounting, so got new shocks and top mounting for both sides of the front done (233)
went back today and they said i needed new engine mounts and quoted me 45! i said ok just to get it done, but they said after looking more closely it just needed tightening which they did for free. HOWEVER
everything is cured apart from the shaking! i have had the wheels rebalanced TWICE! is there anything else that could be causing this??!
Sory for the long post but really need help!
