Bad ball joint after transmission replacement

Transmission shop rebuilt our transmission. Picked it up, clunking noise, took it back, and they said a bad bearing. Second time we picked it up, new problems arose. Vibration, and a sharp pull to the right. Our regular mechanic said we have a bad upper right ball joint. It did not do this before we had the transmission work done. We know that they pulled the transmission twice, which I assume means taking the front end apart somewhat. Could this have impacted a perhaps already worn ball joint? Our regular mechanic said there is no way to know, but I am frustrated. It did not have the vibration and pull to the right before we took it in, and now it does. Would love some to hear some thoughts on this.

    Or maybe it is some other problem, but it was evident on the way home after trannie replacement. There is a wobble in the steering wheel and pull to the right. Our regular mechanic said we need new tires soon, but we needed those before, and did not have this problem.
