I'am only going to quess here.
\015\012The spark plugs have no bearing on anything.
\015\012The alternator is usually a remanufactured item. That said, you don't always get new bearings in the case. I wouldn't suspect they are the noise, you hear though.
\015\012IF, you didn't have these issues before the alternator switch, You, know where the current problem is.
\015\012Meaning,either the new alternator has the wrong pulley on it,and the belt is not tracking correctly,thus putting pressure on the sides of the tension and idler pulleys. Now you have a real mess,noise and belt about to chew it's self apart.
\015\012Second,if I'am wrong,remember,I am quessing, then you have other problems,not properly addressed, for some reason,when they relieved you of some money for the alternator isses.
