What you have is commonly called death wobble. It can be really scary.
Common cause is usually worn ball joints but it can also be caused by a variety of other things...Improperly torqued wheels. steering box tearing off of the chassis, track bar mount or bushing problems or a combination of slight looseness in all steering components giving overall excessive wheel play. The steering damper (sideways shock on linkage) is often blamed but they generally fail as a result of the wobble and are not the cause. If everything has checked carefully and can be verified as good, sometimes adding some positive alignment caster past factory setting can help.

Front passenger brake locked up causing the stearing wheel to shake and a lot of heat and smoke from brakes. Have new brake pads and new master cylinder. Friend looked at brakes and could not find anything...

What happens is the caliper pistons seize. you could rebuild them, but much better to buy new or rebuilt ones.
Replace the flexible hoses at the same time, sometimes they deteriorate on the INSIDE and cause similar issue.

If you have pullsation, after all of this, I would expect that your rotors have suffered heat damage. They would need to be turned or replaced. DO not put up with pullsation.

ALSO, you do "wheel sets" do not replace JUST one side. The safety rule is always do the same to BOTH sides, when you do brakes.

When i push gas pedal my stearing wheel sudenly pulling left and then when i release gas it is go back. and this car has 5 speed manual transmition.

Front wheel drive ? it would seem that the right wheel is not pulling it's weight for what ever reason. In order for this to be corrected you will have to have the right front wheel hub and transmission inspected. That is what is causing it. The left wheel is being forced to do all of the work.

My explorer shakes at driving of high speed

Something out-of-balance somewhere. Start with the tires, check the wheels, then have the driveshaft balance checked. Do any off-roading?

Hi, It sounds to me like the brake disc(s) could be warped or badly worn - it really needs to be inspected at a garage as soon as possible.D
