did you change the shoes along with the drums?
the shoes could have been warped to the shape of the old drums, now you might be getting uneven grab on the drum causing a vibration style feeling
that would be my first thought
otherwise maybe a bearing or the wheel was put on incorrectly (but you would feel this all the time, not just in breaking)
so ya...i'm thinking option 1

no i would recommend replacing the shoes since you've done the drums...they can be a little tricky, the whole system is made up of springs and little gadgets...so it will fall apart when you do to remove it...
you can replace them yourself, but make sure you've got a how-to (maybe a haynes or helms), and do them one side at a time, so you can reference one with the other

other than that there are alot of guys on here that have done it, so if you have any problems while doing them just ask!
good luck

Hello man! One of my friend did recently change his busted brake drum with new ones and he also encounter this vibration thing. We're both kinda confused what's causing but having read this thread, it seems that the shoes that's causing it as mentioned by imported_spl_civic. However, it seems replacing it is kinda complicated so I'm wondering if you could share me some DIY and pictures of replacing it because me and my friend are not familiar doing it. I'll appreciate anyone who could share me some instructions.
