Need help with my 6 inch lift

I have had a 6 inch rough country lift on my truck for about 2 months. I have the rear springs on there. Last week I noticed that one of the leafs on the rear pack got turned. I took it back to the shop and got it straightened up and everything tightened up. I drove 300 miles on the interstate and about 100 highway with about 2 miles in a field. Yesterday I saw that the springs were turned again. Anyone have any advice for me? I know rough country has a 60 day return but they dont pay for install or shipping.

i just like the way the software cuts this title off after "inch" so it reads "Need help with my 6 inch"

the first thing that pops into my head is "Thats a personal problem..."

It has 2 clips further away from the axle. it has the overload spring and its the next spring that does it. I called rough country and he told me that they all do that but they cant do anything about it. A guy is going to make me a clamp to go on there. Would that work?
