Can the rear differential that needs repaired cause the front diff. Breakdown? on 2002 Mercury Mountaineer

Had my rear diff. Replaced with used part at a shop out of state. Started to do same vibrating while turning,etc. About a month later my car made horrible sounds coming from the front. Turned out to be i needed the front diff replaced too! Had that done, 30 days later my front cv joint/arm broke had that replaced and now 1 week later my front differential BROKE again!!! The shop is now saying that it is going to continue happening unless i get the rear fixed. I havent even had the chance to take it out of town to get the rear fixed because its been in the shop so long for my front issues! What is going on? If they knew it would break again they should not have charged me $1800 to fix it!
