Have to keep replacing the front rotters.

Year make and model of vehicle, and why are you replacing them? Do they warp? Or wear unevenly? Or ?
Have you ever replaced the calipers? How often are you changing pads? How many miles on the vehicle?
All of this information is important for a person trying to answer your question on rotors.

Spark@fuel,new timing belts,but it will not start.1988 subaru wagon 1.8

If you have Spark and Fuel There is only two things that
will be the problem.

Start CRYING the timing marks were not properly aligned
when the belts were installed.

The Distributor is not installed with the rotter
pointing to the number 1 sparkplug wire terminal with the number 1 piston at
top dead center, and on the compression stroke. Compression stroke means the
intake and exhaust valves are both closed and the piston is at the top of the
cylinder. To get the piston in proper location at the proper time, remove the
number 1 sparkplug use the starter and just bump the starter until the timing
mark on the harmonic balancer is located close to the timing tab mounted on the
engine. To get the balancer mark to line up with the the timing tab, don't
crank the engine just bump the starter each time so the balancer mark only rotates
a short distance at a time. With the balancer mark close to the ZERO point on
the tab take a stiff long peace of wire, I say long wire, I mean one that will not
fall down in the cylinder to where it can't be retrieved without removing the cylinder
head. Use the wire to feel inside cylinder to see if the piston is at the top
of the cylinder. If it isn't rotate the balancer one revolution and feel for
the piston again. When the piston is at the top with the mark on the balancer aligned
with the tab on the engine, remove the distributor cap locate the number 1
sparkplug wire tower on the cap replace the cap on the distributor making sure
it sets down properly the cap has a tab made on the mounting edge that mates
with a notch in the distributor housing. Make sure they line up. Note the
location where the number 1 sparkplug tower is located you can use a peace of
chalk an make a mark on the side of the distributor housing indicating where
the rotter should point to. Before removing the distributor housing from the
engine notice where the vacuum canister is pointing so when the distributor is
properly timed the canister will be pointing in the same location. Make sure
the distributor gasket is in place before installing the distributor. When installing
the distributor the rotter will rotate in the distributor housing as it is
inserted in the Cam Shaft Gear, on some automobiles there is only one place the
distributor will completely go in to the distributor hole and let the base of
the distributor mate up with the top of the hole surface. If the rotter is not
pointing to the proper place continue removing and turning the rotter a little until
when the distributor is properly seated the rotter is properly alighned. Continue removing and installing the distributor
until the rotter points to the mark you made on the distributor housing and at
the same time the distributor housing is setting on the gasket not about a
quarter of a inch from bottoming out.

How do I get the rear bearings out of the front rotter

Don't know the year make and model, but most cars require you to tap the seal out from the other side. I use a long screwdriver and hammer on most.
It could be pressed in which would mean you need a press to get it out.

Squealing noise coming from the front wheels, only does it when slowing down and after it's ran a few km

Get your brake pads replaced soon. Sounds like to me the squealers are starting to make noise. That is the indication signal to change the brake pads. Depending on how many KMS or MILES that are on your vehicle the drums & rotters may need attention.

Truck vibrates , stering wheel shakes

If you have a vibration and your steering wheel shakes you may want to check your front tires for any bulges because by how you describe what is going on is sounds like you may have a broken belt in one of your front tires. Other things that can cause a vibration would be a bent rim, or a bad cv or uv joint. I hope this helps. Oh yeah I almost forgot it could also be a warped rotter.
