So i have a odessey quadrant back hub, and a vandaro 2 in the front. With the quadrant rims. I was told by a friend that i should get a new front hub before grinding because the vandero 2 isnt strong enough. So do i need a new front hub? If so, what are some good choices for a new one?

Don't listen do your friend, your Hub is absolutely fine for Grinding. There is absolutely no reason at all why you shouldn't use it for Grinding. Get some Hub Guards though.

That's straight up bullshit the guy probably wants to rip you off, the Vandero 2 is a really good hub, 2 friends of mine have been riding one without hubguards for ever and they're both fine, only one of them stripped the axle (user error) and is getting it replaced for 5 bucks, both 4 peg riders.
If you're so concerned about the strength of your hub put some hub guards on, that will also protect the spokes.

Your front hub does almost nothing while you ride your bike, they all actually do nearly the same thing...
