Default megan lp coils getting soft?

hey guys, ive had my megan lp coilovers and drove on them for about 15k miles
and ive noticed they have gotten really soft. im lowered and i ride on full stiff but recently it got to the point where my rim has been hitting inside the fender in the rear and now my wheel looks like it has curb rash all around it and i had never had this while riding on them this whole time. it took all the powder coating off on the outside of the wheel.
any help would be great!

Reset the shock dampening. Set back to setting #1, then slowly click back to #30.

Alright everyone. Coilovers are better! way better than shocks and springs!

Well, that's what I do after a few months w/o any changes in the settings. The shock dampening tends to get a little weaker, so I just reset them and all is back to normal. But I've got BCRs. Perhaps running at max dampening has lessened the useful life of the shocks.
