I assume you have already considered wheel balance or an out-of-round tire.
You didn't mention mileage but then even Toyotas can experience earlier wear and your problem can come from a number of places among them; CV joint, wheel bearings, both can also produce noise in tight curves.
A bad CV joint can often be heard at low speed when turning a corner, a bad bearing has to be quite bad to be heard under the same condition.
With a flaw only on one side, it would be more noticeable when turning one direction over the other.

Putting the car on a hydraulic lift and listening while the engine is running and the transmission engaged would probably lead to a quick confirmation or elimination of those things I mentioned.

Vibration at 80-100k in a 4x4 Ford 350 diesel superduty

Sounds like you need to get your tyres balanced. If the vibration is when you don't touch the brakes only between the 80-100.
If its when you touch the brake pedal and the vibration occures, your disc brakes are warped, either machining or replacement.

Engine vibration

Poor tuning of the engine can result in higher engine vibration. So the fuel and ignition timing MUST be trimmed to allow the engine to tick with ease. if this wont happen the health of the engine is under question and must be checked.
So check the fuel quality, filter and calibration- right fuel mixture of air/fuel.
Next the ignition timing to coincide with the correct timing mark and set using a strobe.
If this wont correct the valve settings, compression and timing must be rechecked.

Vibration on 1985 740gle

Volvo claims that if you don't put them back just as you took them off, this will happen. You probably should pull it again, replace the U-joints and then attempt to put the shaft back as it was originally.
