Make sure you replace both your rotors & pads. Don't just replace one side.

Either your power booster behind the master has failed or the vacuum line or check valve is restricted or leaking.

If the car shudders all the time stopping it could be a rotor out of round sometime this happens with new rotors, they should replace them under warranty. But if it is more like abs shudder then they could have damaged a sensor at one of the wheels, the sensors are used for abs and traction control.

I assume you may have never done this before. Not on this veh. If you have, you already have the tools. how are you going to push the caliper pistons in to make room for the new thicker pads. What about cleaning of all the hub and pad slide rust. Lubing the right parts with the right lube. Rotors;new or have then turned. Work with us here We need to know you skills to be able to help.

There's a special tool required to compress the rear caliper pistons. You may want to rent the tool. If you look at the piston you'll see one or two notches. The special tool has nipples to fit these notches. The caliper piston will have to be compressed with the tool and the notches will have to be placed in the o'clock and 6 o'clock for the brake pads to slide over the rotor. If you rent the special tool have the renter show you how to use it.

SOURCE: anti lock break is on.
If you don't own an OBD II scanner go to your nearest Autozone and have them try to lift the ABS code from your vehicle using one of their scan tools. If they can't find it then go to a a repair shop that has a better scan tool, such as GM's Tech 2 or equivalent, and have them lift the codes. The Tech 2 will also enable them to reset the gears within the ABS pump and preform diagnosis on elements with the ABS. The alternative is to get out an Volt Ohm Meter and start checking everything in the ABS system from the wheel sensors to the connecting cables, the relay(s), and even the brake switch on the car. Many times items that are subject to wear and tear such as the brake light switch and the wheel sensors are those most likely to be at fault. However, the scan tool saves you from this drudgery and points the technician to the difficulty. I'd go the scan tool route as I have tried the other with no result and found that after I purchased a Tech ! scan tool the problem, faulty brake switch, was made apparent quickly.
