Default New carrier bearing making noise.

So I recently had work done at a shop, they had replaced the carrier bearing that supports the driveshaft and now when ever I have my foot on the accelerator it makes a chirping noise, any thoughts to what could be going on?

They also replaced a control arm because it was damaged and did the ball joints while they were in there. Now when I take off there is a slight vibration on my front end that seems to even out the faster I drive. This was after an alignment so maybe my tires are also a bit wonky causing the rough ride at low speed.

Gonna have the shop go in and double check there work tomorrow.

Does it chirp all the time or only when you are moving? If it's when you are moving, does it happen in drive, reverse, or both?

It seems the part must have worn itself in. Because the noise is gone, it was very faint to begin with.

Although every time I launch from 1st I get a bit of a vibration through my wheel but as soon as I shift to 2nd it's gone. I'm thinking it's torque related as it only does it in 1st.

Probably the dust shield at the front of the driveshaft rubbing a little. They just push on, so they are easily knocked out of line. Easily tapped back in place when that happens.
