Strange sound after alignment

Hello guys,

So I? took my car in for an alignment today and when I? got it back it started making a strange sound coming from the right side, specifically the right front. With my alignment I? also has the replace and balance the right front tire a well

The sound can be heard when braking at low speeds and when driving at low speeds but I? can feel something off through the pedal as well. It was not doing this before I? got an alignment. Any help would be much appreciated

This is a joke, right?
Print your post and hand it to the alignment shop (delete the "I?" parts or they might think you're not actually sure you did all those things). Then point to the paper and say "you fix please".

Has your steering angle changed? Last time i got an alignment, they screwed it up and my steering wheel was off to the right. Have you got any more vibrations in the steering wheel that get worse with speed? Is your car lowered?

Im going straight for the obvious. Are your wheel nuts tight? If its a change when you are breaking.... it could be this or a loose caliper? not sure why the breaks would be touched on an alignment though.
