Unhappy Harsh handling after recent rear air suspension repair. need help

I have recently had the rear airbag on my W211 replaced for a new one due to a problem with the expansion chamber. After receiving the car back the ride front and back has been very harsh and when small potholes or uneven surfaces are encountered the noise is startling and a bit scary. When cornering and encountering the same road imperfections the feeling is close to losing control of the front end. The repair was NOT done my a MB location and most recently I am suffering from a catastrophic failure of both the same airbag (shredded) and the same repair location is telling me that the inner and outer TI-rods and both front bearings need replacing

This has all happened in an 8 week period. What could the repair location have done or NOT done that created this situation for me

Please help this I a very expensive problem I am dreading my next interaction with the mechanic is I am not armed with some intelligent and appropriate questions about their first repair

All parts were MB OEM nothing was aftermarket
