It could be your CV joint or axle. Take it back and have the repair shop check it out. They may have damaged something when changing the ball joints.

Alright so i had thee wheel bearing replaced and the sound is that it was making is gone but now there is a different kind of winding sound in the front left. Sound goes away when it is in four wheel drive. Just wondering if a snap clip or something might have been overlooked when it was reassembled
