New isolators better and worse

So recently I was wondering what could be causing my 4.5" rough country coils to be hitting the track bar mount on the drivers side frame rail whenever I hit a bump or really when I flex. Some one on here suggested that the isolators may be tapered, causing them to bend out when flexing. They were tapered, so I replaced both sides, With the help of my buddy tom, and it made my coils hit less often, but now when I do flex, the coils hit harder! And the passenger side has started to hit the frame rail :thumbsdown: when compressed during flex. This is one of those things that has to be repaired before I can do any more trail riding.

My question is, what could be causing this? And what can I do to fix it?

Any and all help is very appreciated. Thanks

If my writing is confusing or something, let me know, because I could really use the help here.

If needed I'll just go to 4wp or something.
