Grinding sound

Hi, I have a automatic 98 Base that i bought in November. About a month or two ago it started making a slight grinding sound when accelerating slowly or driving at around 30-40 MPH.
Recently it started to get worse and you can feel the pedal shaking. Most of the time it stops when you give it more gas but sometimes it won't accelerate and the grinding sound/shaking gets worse.

Someone told me it was the CV axles so I replaced them this past week. It helped a little but it's still like 95% as bad as it was.

Has anyone else had this problem or have any idea of what is causing it?

I bought it from an Acura dealer, they said the engine/trans was swapped and has around 55-60k miles, the body has 210k.


Edit: Forgot to add that the sound comes mostly from under the driver's side.
