Did you check all the control arms bushes? Sorry I can't answer that I wasn't there when they were being changed
Were the stabilizer bushes and links checked/replaced?Same as above

When does it occur? While i'm driving, but a friend of min told me to use WD40, I used it yesterday on the bushings and struts, and I haven't heard it since.
Does it occur when turning the steering with vehicle stopped? No just while the car is driving
Does it occur when bumping the vehicle manually? It occurs on bumpy roads
Does the shaking of the steering wheel occur only at specific speeds? Yes, not sure of the speed, but anything over 50 kph
During acceleration, deceleration and cruising? Yes it does
Have the tires been checked/balanced? Yes the were checked, and balanced
Were the CV inner joints checked?When I bought the car these things I haven't gotten around to changing yet, that i'll definately deal with this weekend, but my mechanic never found any problems with those specific parts.
