Warped front rotors will make it shimmy.

Did you have a front or rear line repaired?

If it was the rear line that failed, stopping with the fronts could have overheated the rotors, before you realised, you were only using them .

If you had a blown front line, you may have had a problem, with the front brakes, back, before the line blew.

In any case, its hard to imagine, changing a brake line, causing warped rotors.

If they had to remove the wheel to repair the line it sounds like they never torxed it properly and warped the rotor.
You said it started after the repair.

Could some brake fluid have sprayed on one or more rotors and not have been cleaned off properly?

It's fairly common on cars if you over tighten the lug nuts to develop a shimmy when stopping (especially a hard stop). Maybe they used a 1" impact and really cranked them down without snapping them off.

I'd try to loosen then re tighten the wheel they worked on.

Had the same thing happen to my SUV. Had front and rear brakes done. Smooth before terrible after. Took it back and the returned to front rotors. Still bad. Don't have time to kill half a day at the shop again:(

I would put on 2 new rotors and calipers (some f them come "loaded" which means they come with brake pads installed.

Sit down & call the parts stores in your area-you will be surprised how cheap (and expensive)they can be bought depending on the source.

Rebuilt calipers are fine.
