engine mounts have sagged causing the vibration, generally the drivers side goes first.

warped brake rotor?

But I would suggest its probably your drive shaft, undo it and rotate everything one hole, do it up again, check it, its only 4 bolts, you can do it yourself, its a non-cost option to try and resolve before you hand it to someone who may charge.

Keep rotating the drive shaft through 360' to try and eliminate the vibration. You may also want to try a different drive shaft incase yours is warped.

I normally dont drive with my foot on the brakes unless I am stopping..... Like most people I would have assumed.....

Sounds like a warped brake rotor... possibly the rear drivers side by your description....
