Default 93 bonneville se steering vibration/brake problem

Today on my way to work today i noticed a vibration coming from my steering wheel when i hit the gas and a when i brake. I thought at first it was tire pressure but all the tires are good so i not too sure what else it could be. Also i've had a brake problem for some time now. I have alot of brake travel and i have a grinding sound coming from my rear passenger drum brake. I've taken it to a mechanic and at first they thought it was wheel cylinder so that was change, then they bled the whole brake system, then they change a faulty brake hose on the front passenger side, i thought it was the master cylinder but they told me that it was good so i'm just not sure what it was. For those that had these problems in the past what is the cause and how did you fix it.

Does it vibrate more when you brake hard? Could be a warped rotor.

I had the same problem when i first got my 00 SSEi. New rotors & rotated tires, seemed to fix the job.

The vibration does get worst when i brake hard. I'm gonna check my rotors and rotate my tires so i can do a process of elimination. Thanks again everyone i'll keep you posted.
