Hello. I have a 2004 tundra 4x4 and have been have this weird vibration in my brakes ever since I got new drums and rotors/pads but it's different than warping. Midas told me they couldn't find anything wrong however, I just pulled off the drums and one of the shoes is tapered. The other 3 are pretty uniform, but the passenger rear front changes thickness from one end to the other. Is this normal? I am not as familiar with drums as disc. Thank you.

Could be a problem with the rear wheel cylinder not engaging right (means its bad) or perhaps the shoe isnt on there right or adjusted right (iirc its like 1mm from the drum).

Protip: Dont EVER take your car to midas or such places, a real mechanic is where you go. Those chain shop guys usually are idiots. If your not comfortable working on it yourself then find a real mechanic.

Also check the parking brake pivot on that side, it maybe stuck.
