    I think he means the mud flap could be loose/broken and rubbing. Check around your axel for anything wrapped up in it, visually inspect around your wheels and brakes for anything that shouldn't be there, ect. Aside from that, I'd start looking at suspension components...

    check for a loose cam-bolt on the Lower control arm, the arm is slapping back and forth when your momentum changes or you hit a bump

    Yes, that could be why. Something is definitely wrong. It is beginning to sound like the tech went to lunch in the middle of the alignment.
