Thinking hub is bad

2003 4x4 7.3. dwd, cc has 85k. I just bought the truck a couple months ago. Had pulsation in the brake pedal and vibration in the steering so I decided to replace all rotors and calipers. Dial indicator shows over .010 run out on front passenger side with old and new rotor. Does this mean I have a hub with worn bearings?

thanks in advance

Update...The po had smacked the outer edge of the hub with a hammer and dented or pushed in the edge to the point where the rotor would not sit flush to the hub. I filed down the bump and now run out is within spec.

Thanks for the update. Did these things fix your p brake pulsing? Was the vibration only while braking?

I have not drove it yet, plan on finishing this week end. I will post my results. Im thinking it has to be most if not all the problem. U joints, ball joints, bushings etc are all still tight. I also replaced the shocks and had the front tires taken off rims and switch with two of the best rears. The po never rotated the tires and the fronts were cupped really bad.
