Vibrating front end

I have an 83 Toyota 4x4 pickup. 4 months ago I was backing up in a parking garage and hooked my front bumper on a concrete column. I took it to my mechanic and found out I broke my right motor mount. I replaced both motor mounts and still have the vibration. I took it to Big O and they found nothing wrong with the frame but said I needed an alignment. (true) BUT the truck vibrates even when it idles. When I push in the brake pedal, the vibration dampens a little bit, like muffled a bit. I have no idea what the problem is. What’s wrong with my truck?

You have a nest of vacuum lines that looks like a plate of spaghetti? Good luck figuring out which one is leaking.

vacuum lines? really? hmm… why would that cause a vibration?
