Find the power steering pump. The fluid goes in the top of the pump. Look for a twist off cap that has a measuring stick attached to the under side, when you take it off. Make sure you use the correct type of fuild for YOUR kind of vehicle. There are diffrent types for different makes of vehicles. Don't OVERFILL the pump.

The problem isn't at your brake calipers. Your rotors have a slight warp to them causing your vibration when you stop.

I have had the ABS light come on and stay on on a 2000 Suburban and a 2003 suburban. In both instances the brake system was fine. If you have not done so I would recommend you have the system checked for codes. If there are no error codes and the system is functioning properly the problem with the light staying on can be solved simply. Or at least I hope this solves your problem.
There is a small ground wire that is secured to the top rear of the engine block. It is on the passenger side of the engine. To find it remove the engine cover and reach back to locate the connection. Over time the ground connection gets compromised by dirt, grease, or corrosion. You need to unbolt this connection, clean the surfaces and re-install. On a friend's truck I just reached back and twisted the connection to seat it better and the lights have not come back on.
It sounds too simple but if it works it is much better that giving money to the dealer or a mech to solve the problem.

7.1. Place the hex end of the wrench over the wheel cylinder bleeder valve. 7.2. Immerse the opposite end of the hose into a clear container partially filled with clean brake fluid.
8.1. Place the proper size hex end of the wrench over the caliper bleeder valve. 8.2. Place a clear tube over the caliper bleeder valve. 8.3. Immerse the opposite end of the hose into a clear container partially filled with clean brake fluid.

that would be the first plavce i checked and the cable runs from the transmission to the dash and its a real hassle to get to and install I would get a chilton manual to show you how to get to the connections the easiest way, you can also get a repair manual at your local library
