Suspension groan. CA bushings?

Ever since I had a new control arm bracket welded on and new balljoint sway bar links put on, I have been getting a moaning/squeaking that sounds like rubber everything I go over a bump or something and the suspension moves. And around corners sometimes. I figured it was the new sway bar link ball joints wearing it, but then it hit me yesterday that the shop could have tightened the control arms in the air. Would that make this sound? I know the CA bushings aren't in great shape, but this noise was non existent until after the shop worked on it.

Im not sure. I didn't do the work. The ball joints have a boot so I'm guessing there is some grease in there. But I doubt that they were additionally.
