steering vibration and pulling to the passenger side

I have never encountered this problem since i have owned the truck the past 5 years. The truck has wheel vibration at about 45MPH and jerks the steering wheel back and forth a little bit. I have to aim the steering wheel towards the left because it pulls hard to the right side if i let go of the wheel. At highway speeds i don't feel much vibration in the wheel but the pulling to the right gets worse. As long as the truck travels straight i feel nothing. I have no idea what to think about it. Wheel allignment or wheel out of balance?

Right front brake hanging up? Next time it does this, stop and check to see how much heat is building up on that hub.

Ill give that a look and see. I would almost say the allignment is off but i haven't hit a big curb or anything that i know of that would really knock it off. Sitting at a stop when i try to put the steering wheel straight it quickly flings back to about "10 o'clock" once i let go of the wheel. Or if i have the wheel at 10 o'clock to go straight and let go going about 5mph the wheel starts shaking and pulling to the right at about 2 o'clock. I only feel a lot of vibration at lower speeds. The wheel jerks back and forth a little bit at lower speeds, but gets better once i hit about 60mph
