Welcome, and thanks for using Just Answer. I am Cam, and I will do my best to assist you. When you are finished please click on accept only if you are satisfied. I don't get paid unless you do.Please do not accept if you cannot leave positive feedback. I don't know if you are a tech or a just working on your own vehicle so we may have to fine tune the answer. I only know as much about your problem as you have told me in your post, so my answers will be based on what you tell me so please add all the details you can. About your vehicle, no, unless the wheel alignment was so far out you could not drive it or at least let go of the wheel, it is not caused by anything the mechanic did. Unfortunately, this is just poor timing. Now if the noise started the day after then I would say it is something caused but the repair, but based on what you have told me in your information, I don't think it is related at all.
