getting a whole new brake system

So I was going to just put on stainless brake lines but know I have to replace everything. Turns out my front left caliper was not braking at all and the rears, just the outside pad was moving. So three out of four are siezed up. Also, the master cylinder had a seal in it that was coming apart. Those pieces must have made their way to the calipers.
The frustrating part is I took the truck to my usual repair shop and they said nothing was wrong. After my friend dug into it he found the above problems.
I won't be going back to that shop.
