I may be wrong, but that sounds like 2 different things

the 'shake and shudder' sounds like worn steering/suspension parts rather than brakes, braking from speed then just amplifies the problem
there are so many components within the steering/suspension, it will need a thorough check for worn or damaged parts

check the condition of the discs & pads for the grinding

HTH

Let there be light, sound, drums, guitar
LET THERE BE ROCK
