Default Engine and steering Wheel Shakes in reverse

I just had a lot of work done on my PT/Cruiser, some of the major stuff was replacing water pump and timing chain, thermostat housing and finally a new transmission. That all took place over a mater of 4 months, now every time I put the car in reverse the engine vibrates so much that the steering wheel shakes. When I put it back into drive it quiets down, and when in reverse it doesn't vibrate at all. Any suggestions?
I also just had shocks and struts replaced but the car is still not handling well, to be more precise when making turns it feels like I am turning wheel much harder than I actually am, the rear end feels like it is kicking out too.

Have you taken it back to the place that did the work and complained?
