It could be a bad CV joint but make sure the correct oil is in the transmission differential and rear differential.
Absolutely take it to a Subie specialist ASAP. Your observation that it's like a 4X4 running engaged is a hint to me that there's a problem in your transfer case which is the mechanism that distributes power to the front and rear wheels.
Things could get expensive if you don't get this fixed while it's still drivable.
