Where do you feel the vibration? if you feel it where you sit it is coming from back which is usually rear brakes. If you feel the vibration in your feet and hands it is coming from the front which could be your ABS or front brakes.

SOURCE: When applying the brakes I get a vibrating sensation

Sounds as though the front brake rotors have became warped. This can happen due to sticking caliper slides not releasing the brakes fully, or heavy braking or two footed driving. I recommend a complete brake inspection. upon further inspection if the brakes are found to be in good working order then taking a measurement of the brake rotors, if rotors are with specification then have the rotors turned on a lathe and reinstall. Hope this helps.

Vibration can cause by bent wheels, warp rotors, sticky or worn out calipers piston, bent or worn tie rod bushing, warp separating tires, worn break pad. Did you bleed the brake properly if you open the bleeding nipple in order to release the pressure to allow you to put the new pad in, with abs unit you cant bleed the brake the same way with standard unit causing the air to be lock up in the unit and it will not allow the pressure in the piston in your calipers to work properly pressing the rotors evenly. with abs unit there is lots of nick and cranny chambers that the fluid travel through, air will be the worst enemy in the system and will throw your computer off trying to adjust and compensate the pressure to give all 4 side of the calipers equal pressure to the pistons. also make sure all 4 calipers piston are working properly and not one or two are not sticky. if all three piston is working properly and one is bad or defective, you will also get a vibration.

SOURCE: steering wheel and gas pedal vibrate at abot 35

I don't want to imply you don't have your brakes serviced or your shop is less than competent--But,unless a wheel weight fell off,or you have a really bad CV Joint causing this vibration,along with bad motor mounts,yes you can have a combination of worn items. Then I will bet on the fact that at least 50% of your problem,is worn brake rotors,rusted pad slides,rusted caliper mounting bracket and no one ever lubed a thing during any brake work. So pads grabbing rotors and you got brake chatter. Please don't be offended,but in my world that could have been prevented with semi-annual brake service.

My 2005 gmc envoy is vibrating only when my foot is on brake or when I stop

If you are not a heavy footed braker... then you have an ABS module problem. There are several sites on line that will do an exchange for a rebuilt one for around $100. If you are a heavy footed braker, your car is behaving normally, Just don't press so aggressively and the vibration won't happen. ABS brakes are supposed to shudder and vibrate when activated, they apply pressure to your brake calipers at roughly 15,000 times a sec, off and on to prevent the brakes from locking up and the car loosing control. In a panic stop, press a car with ABS brakes ALL THE WAY TO THE FLOOR as hard as you can, use the steering wheel for leverage and push the pedal down a bit more, RIGHT BEFORE IT COMES TO A COMPLETE STOP.

Power Steering pump appears to be leaking but is full????

Just guessing. Could it be a warped brake disk? That would cause vibration. And vibration in steering might conceivably cause splashing out the power steering reservoir. You would know if the disk were warped by a shudder when you brake at hight speeds.
