Sometimes, it can simply be that you have unevenly worn your rotors. Some people have been mislead to believe that when you have ABS, that you do not need to gradually use the brake pedal to stop. Instead, they are told to apply 1 strong push to the pedal to stop, supposedly allowing the ABS to do the rest. Actually, even with an ABS system, you stop the same as if you didn't have it. Constantly stopping "hard" can put uneven wear on the rotor, causing a "bumping" feeling in the pedal when you brake, even though the pads are good. You can have the rotors checked, and turned if they have never been turned before (smoothed out).

This can be caused by a warped rotor, which occurs from sudden amounts of heat (hard braking) when u have your rotors checked also look at your pads, they most likely will be glazed, cauzing them to just ride the warp, as opposed to biting into it -

Try having your tires balanced and rotated. I used to have a car that would shake very bad when applying the brakes and I did everything you did. Then a guy told me to have my tires balanced and rotated and it fixed it until the tires became unbalanced again.

Which wheels would the wheel cylinders be on if a vehicle has front disc brakes and rear drum brakes?

The wheel cylinders will be associated with the rear drum brakes. Drum brakes use a wheel cylinder to activate the brakes - push the shoes out against the drum. Disc brakes use a caliper unit to push a piston out and squish the brake pads against the rotor. The front disc brake pads are pressed against the rotor by pistons inside the calipers to slow the vehicle. Both are hydraulically controlled.
