While driving you can hear rattling over every bump. When slowing down or coming to a complete stop the car shakes tremendously. If I was to slam on my brakes, I don't the car would stop because it shakes to bad.

The rotors are warped from overheating. Replace the pads and rotors and be gentle on the brakes.
