Did you do anything else to the car? What kind of vibration is it? Like a rattle?

Did you unplug your rear spark plug wires to get more room while you were changing out the O2? If so you may have crossed them, or not fully seated them back on.

This makes no sense unless you moved an exhaust shield or something... I don't know of anything else. :/

the noise is probably a coincidence, somthing else that was going that's finally let go... have you checked the body-cradle mounts?

I think you should beat your father severely while he sleeps and cave in his solar plexus with a blunt object like a cast iron cylinder head.
