Question: Brakes or Rotors

When I going am at a slower speed ( 40 mph or less ) and apply the brakes, the car appears to stop normally. But when I am at higher speeds and apply the brakes, the steering wheel shakes and I hear a rattle noise in the rear. I do not hear any squeeking or grinding however.

That is normally caused by warped front rotors. They'll need to be resurfaced or replaced, along with new pads.

For the rattle noise, have the rear brakes inspected.
