Are there any dhamma talks/teachings by Thai Forest teachers that have the possibility of helping me become established in Right View? I'd greatly appreciate any responses.

Try Thanissaros teachings http://www.dhammatalks.org/
or the forest sanghas teachings http://forestsanghapublications.org/downloadListen.php
there is also the Suttas
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!

"Others will misconstrue reality due to their personal perspectives, doggedly holding onto and not easily discarding them; We shall not misconstrue reality due to our own personal perspectives, nor doggedly holding onto them, but will discard them easily. This effacement shall be done."

Thanissaro on right view... http://www.dhammatalks.org/Archive/TheE ... 20View.mp3http://diydharma.org/challenge-right-vi ... ro-bhikkhu
Ajahn Amaro: I'm right, you're wrong. Attachment to views and the Buddha's path of non contention... http://dharmaseed.org/teacher/4/?page=2
I couldn't find Amaro actually ever talking about right view, it was strange.

"He just listens and then contemplates, giving rise to the right results accordingly.
A wise man should contemplate and see the cause and effect for himself before he believes what he hears
