I am new here also but here is my go at it.

Sounds like the traction control is kicking in hence your vibration.
The traction control is just your abs brakes kicking in to eliminate wheel slippage. Which would be why your brakes are red hot.

You probably have a wheel speed sensor or whatever the caddy has for monitoring wheel speed which would control the traction control.

Take it in and have it checked out again.

DRIVE HARD! An STS is ment to drive hard, if you dont want to drive hard then get the SLS, right? I dont think its your traction system. It sounds like you might just need your tires rotated. What pads are you using on the breaks. I hope the cadillac ones, they are made specially to extend the high heat from the heavy car and breaking fast. I hope that helps
