Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will assist you. 2 things come to mind : 1 a front wheel speed sensor that became disconnected or damaged when the ball joints were done, or 2 the steering angle sensor needs to be recalibrated since the alignment was done. Who did the ball joints?

Ok, ask him to double check the wiring at both front wheel speed sensors. Then get a scan tool that can read ABS codes to check and clear the codes. That should turn off the ABS and ESP lights.
