Default Front end noises on 99 TL with 120k miles

99 3.2 TL with 120k miles has developed some front end noises and "feel" recently. Front end makes a slight pop sound when brakes are applied and on initial acceleration. Also, there is a barely audible groan/whine and very slight jolt upon shifting - especially under light load - like something has some play in it. Had one of the motor mounts replaced 2 years ago - obviously a problem area for this car. I can't tell whether this is drivetrain (shafts/CV...) or possibly suspension related. I'd appreciate any ideas from the more experienced. Thanks.

Would anyone like to comment if they have had engine &/or tranny mounts replaced on their Acura TL? My symptoms now are squeak/pop upon acceleration, shifting & going over bumps & rough surfaces. I'm wondering about a good way to diagnose and what should I be expecting to pay if engine/tranny mounts?
I've been driving for 40 years and owned probably 20 cars & I've only replaced one motor mount - on this same TL a couple of years ago. Mounts should not be a maintenance item - especially on cars of this caliber. Thanks.
