Default 2001 SC2 lilting while turning at 40ish and above

The lilt was the first thing I noticed while I was merging on the highway a couple weeks ago. Sweeping turns to the left make the vehicle kind of tip, as if it were resting on the frame instead of one solid unit. It doesn't feel like the wheel hub etc is going to snap off, which happened to me in a different vehicle, this feels a bit higher up. After noticing that and while waiting to get a slot with my mechanic I noticed that if I shift fast it sometimes feels like the wheel is being jerked ever so slightly. Only ever going into third or fourth but never both regardless of if I'm accelerating at the same rate. It makes some clunks that feel like they are somewhere in the middle of the car or maybe a little bit to the right. My mechanic drove it and noticed that if you kind of swerve back and forth at any speed that when you tug the wheel to the left it doesn't seem to want to respond right away. If you turn towards the right it doesn't do that or at least it responds noticeably faster. But my mechanic had it on the lift and said there was very little he could notice that was wrong let alone would be causing the noise and flop... I'm wondering if it's something going from the steering column into whatever else but it's definitely an area of the car I don't know a ton about. My mechanic also said it could be the struts but the noise definitely doesn't seem to be coming from those areas and it just doesn't feel like a bad strut.

Thank you if you made it this far lol
