Unhappy shaking problems

So here it goes i started having shaking problems in the steering wheel when i started to brake. so i found out it was a bad ball joint so i changed that. now i still feel the shaking i dont feel any pulsation from from the brake pedal so i know its not warped rotors, but i get squeaking noise when i hit bumps or clicking/ clunking and i think the struts are blown. Can someone please help me with the shaking problems.

Did you have an alignment done after the ball joint was replaced??

Being out of alignment could cause it to shake but if you dont know how to check for bad tie-rods, wheels bearing, struts... ect, maybe it would be a good idea to bring it to a shop to have them check?
