The first thing to check is the wheels on the back corners of the deck....amke sure that they are set at the same height and that the bearings are not out of the wheel, which would allow the deck to sink lower on one side.
If all of that checks out then you have problems under the deck....
The bearings that hold the blades can wear allowing one of the blades to drop, or one of the blades could be bent which could cause it to cut lower...to fix that bearings will have to be replaced or the blades will have to be replaced if bent.....
These would be the causes for your mower to cut unevenly...

I had the same problem with my 15 year old Craftsman lawn tractor. I tried to adjust the steering travel but it gave me marginal relief for a year until the steering failed with my steering wheel spinning freely and the wheels free to go left and right. The left bias for steering indicates that the steering shaft pinion weld was shearing prior to failure.
I took the steering apart and found that the drive pinion gear was sheared off the end of the steering shaft at the weld. I replaced the shaft and sector gear to fix this issue.
This fix requires good amount of mechanical disassembly to get the replacement parts in place so you might need to go to a shop to get a mechanic to fix this if you aren't set up for this kind of fix by disconnecting the mower deck and jacking up the front end to access the steering gear assembly and steering arm links.
