Question about 1998 Toyota Corolla
Runs fine but shakes heavily when braking over 50 mph and i just installed new rear brake drums and pads.
The shaking would be from your front rotors. First, loosen the lugs and retighten them with a torque wrench (not an impact gun) to the proper setting as described by Toyota. If the lugs are tightened unevenly or too tightly, it will artifically warp your rotors. If this does not fix the issue, your rotors are most likely warped from overheating, or being sprayed with water while hot, or from age. Get new rotors (and pads - always use new pads with new rotors), install them, and torque your wheels properly, and you should be in good shape.
