What about rear brakes, have those been checked out? sometimes even a drum can warp, it could also be an imbalaced tire, maybe even an untrue rim. normally bouncing comes from an imbalance somewhere.

Ensure that vehicle is securely supported before lifting. To help avoid personal injury when a vehicle is not on a hoist provide additional support for the vehicle on the opposite end from where components are being removed. Ensure that the lift does not contact fuel or brake lines.
NOTE: Never replace brake pads on one side of axle only. Left and right side brake pads must be replaced only as axle sets.
NOTE:Before installing the wheel and tire assemblies remove rust or corrosion from wheel mounting surfaces and brake rotors. Failure to do so can cause wheel bolts to loosen in service.
If this operation is not carried out brakes will not operate properly during initial brake applications.

Don't know the answer but consider a few things
You now have newer model saturn
That means totally different electronics,
throughout the car
Braking Systems or any vehicle systems
are designed by engineers to do specific
things a certain way ,and millions of dollars
are spent getting the final product to the dealer
Your not doing a restoration or modification,
as you would on, say a 55 chevy here
So my answer is, you don't have one thing I can
think of in the braking system that would be compatible
from disc to drum, when you consider the ABS System
Electronics and now way you have the same master cylinder
or wheel cylinder diameters,volume,metering valves etc.
Someone may give you a very technical answer, that it has &
can be done by someone on this site.
I personally could engineer it,but wouldn't, it is a daily
driver and 10 years old. You don't spent any time or money
on something like that.
They don't even make Saturns anymore
