    Yes that is the ABS and is perfectly normal. The shaking noise is actually the ABS rapidly pump the brake cylinders. The vibration/shaking gets transfered to the steering wheel.

    I notice it when i slip, once i was slipping and trying to do 4x4 and did the same thing... as long its the ABS than good, I dont want to worry on something big...
