Exclamation I need help. And quick.

Okay I have used the search bar and all I have gotten is things about rims or how to replace the brake pads.

So Yesterday I found out that the person I bought the truck from 6 months ago did the brakes on it. However, They didn't replace the rotors in the front....... so yesterday I was driving pretty slow 20-30. And i went to press the brakes, Made a loud bang and I heard metal clunk on the ground. So I get out. My brake pad got torn out of the caliper. The rotor gave way in between one of the vents. Brand new pads, but now i need rotors. so right now i have the rotor off the truck and when i took it off the front wheel bearing came out fine. Should I bother taking out the rear bearing? Because its being stubborn and wont come out. I was thinking of just buying all new hub, all compressed and just slapping it on with some grease. I don't know i need help.

I can get pictures for any one who wants them....

pics would be nice but the safest thing is to replace everything that you think is damaged so that you know that it is safe. brakes are not something that i would short on. they literally save your life every time you use them.
