Whistling like a bird

I just had ball joints replaced both sides on a Ford 2000 taurus SE now its whistling like a bird when I brake and off brakes could this be the brakes? Could anything been put back wrong from replacing ball joints?

Please forgive @VOLVO_V70, he was raised by wolves.

Of course, it could be a coincidence, but it probably isn’t. I recommend you go back to where the work was done and tell them about this symptom.

I’m wondering if @VOLVO_V70 s reply was misunderstood. He may have meant his question to the op was a stupid question rather than the op’s question was stupid.

…but he didn’t ask a question.

That is correct. I should have said 'I have a dumb question ’

@Whitey Actually he did ask a question. He just didn’t follow it with a question mark. Easy to misinterpret.
