I would check ICM's and coils first, even though they're new. They can fail at any time. Swap ICM leads first, since easiest. See if miss moves to bank 1. If so, replace bank 2 ICM. If still at...

Are the cv boots OK? Do the CV's make a clicking noise when you make slow full lock turns. Check that axle bolts to trans are all tight.
