At the least the driveshafts have to be removed from the gearbox though it's usually possible to leave them fitted in the hubs and just tie them up to the underside of the chassis somewhere out of the way. If whoever did the job took down the front subframe to carry out the work and didn't align it properly when reinstalling it, that could possibly explain the problem.
