MLL rubbing?

I have an RC lift with MLl's in the rear and noticed the drivers left shock has the spring rubbing against the shock body. It's chewed through the finish and exposing bare metal. The dust boot is torn and useless at this point. Any ideas how to correct this to align the spring and shock so they don't rub? I don't mind just replacing them if it is a defect.

It has nothing to do with the vehicle.... thats just how these shocks are.

I used some axle grease the lubricate the are where the spring rubs and it stays quiet for a long time.

I just gave mine a squirt of chain oil I had in the trunk and it's been silent for 3 weeks now. Works until I decide to fix it fully (my boot is still intact, just slides up).

Mine has also started rusting where it rubs, is this something to worry about? Will it rust out before the shock itself is worn out?

I had the same issue. Here's what I did. That was 7 months ago and I haven't had an issue since.
