Quick update:

Ordered a new alternator before removing the old one. Removed the old one and had it bench tested. It tested fine at Advance Auto.

I read in some other thread a member had his alt. tested by 3 places, all of them saying it was good, so he replaced it anyway and his issue was fixed.

I did the same thing and the car has been running fine for a week now. The problem might have been the VR but there's peace of mind in knowing I shouldn't have to worry about the alt. for quite some time.
