Question about 1999 Toyota 4Runner
Unless you are absolutely sure that it is not in 4wd --what you describe is the effect of 4wd on hard surface where there is a torque wind up in the drive train system trying to drive all wheels and not allowing a diff action to work

For the occasionally turning sound:
Sounds to me like you may want to check your CV boots for cracks. If water and other debris has got up into the boot then it could have damaged your cv joint which is a swivel joint to allow turning on front wheel cars. The boot is right at the point where your axle meets the wheel assembly.
The second problem with the transmission: with that kind of miles on the car, you may want to change the transmission fluid and filter and then add a container of TransX, used for older transmissions. Then see what happens. The TransX additive helps with seals and such... or you could just add the TransX to your transmission while its warm , drive it about 100 miles and hopefully see the effects.

have your wheel bearings checked out. sounds like a wheel bearing going bad, if you said it gets worse when turning right have your left wheel bearings checked for wear. weight transfer will put more strain on the bearings and make them louder.
