2002 Ford Focus brakes shaking

I think my right front caliper is sticking. I push on the brakes and the steering wheel shakes and the for a few miles the car slightly shakes as you drive, it seems to smooth out the farther you drive. Then when you hit the brakes the cycle starts again. I also notice when I let my hands off the steering wheel during the period while it's doing the slight shaking the car tends to pull to the right. I pulled over and I thought the passenger side wheel felt warmer then then the driver side. I am planning on going ahead and changing the pads and rotors, but is there a way to diagnose/repair the caliper possibly sticking?
