Maybe bad wheel bearings? Bad CV joints?(knocking noise clue!!)
I'd replace both.

BTW,they are called axle half-shafts,the "transaxle" is the entire
transmission/differential.

Also,maybe you don't have the right motor mounts to LOCATE(properly
position)the engine/transaxle WRT the front suspension.Just a guess,though.
IIRC,there's a company with an online site that sells motor mounts and
other stuff necessary for Honda/Acura engine swaps,along with a lot of
info. Google should turn it up.
