do you have a pull or wander? the noise could be a bad wheel bearing but thats got nothing to do with the alignment. but you can check the steering componets yourself with a bottle jack, pry bar and the wife.

put the bottle jack under the lower control arm close but not directly underneath the ball joint. jack it up enough to fit the pry bar under the tire. Have the ole lady pry up on it and look for loose componets. check the tie rods by having her shake the tires from side to side.

keep an eye on the bearing too, you should feel the same amount of play vertically as well as horizontally if the bearing is the culprit. but sounds as if you have a ball joint out.
