have you checked the trans fluid? auto or manual?
front diff fluid as well if it's an auto.
did the issues change or stay exactly the same after the new axles were installed? sounds like it stayed the same...which would suggest the axles are not the cause? need to rule that out since aftermarket axles are absolutely horrible.
i doubt this "play" is the culprit but maybe you should describe it better? the inner joints have some play to them, they aren't structural really, they just transfer power. on the auto's - if you yank the axle hard enough the stubby shaft just plops right out of the trans, held in only by a circlip.
auto or manual trans?
can you describe the noise better?
do you know exactly where it's coming from?
cracked flexplate, piston slap, rod knock, timing tensioner failing and flopping around.
have the headgaskets ever been replaced?
trans fluid ever been changed?
