    Check you front brake rotors. If they are warped this will wear your pads and cause steering wheel jerking when stopping quickly. Yes you should maintain your lube points when you change your oil.

    is this a 4X4 truck? If so you probably need to go to a qualified service center. Try out an independent shop, usually estimates and diagnosis are free or inexpensive.
