Question "Rubbery" turns when going left

I've got a small issue on our 2009 Buick Enclave CXL AWD...

When we make long sweeping left turns the steering feels rubbery or springy. It's not a shimmy like you would get from an out of balance wheel but more like the air pressure in the front right tire was low.

I've checked the air pressure and all the tires are in spec. One item to note is that the front right wheel has more wear than the rest of the tires... down to 3/32" and the rest are 6/32". It is worn evenly.

I'm suspecting a worn tie rod end, but I'm not sure.

Any ideas on what would cause the steering to feel sloppy only on wide left turns? How about the odd wear of one tire?
