Default preload on fork tightening as riding???

Any idea what would make the preload on my right front fork tube tighten while riding? It goes about 1/4 turn every 50-100 miles depending on how I ride? Been doing this ever since I got new springs and valves put in by a dealer a long time ago. Left one is fine. But strangely, the right is TIGHTENING, not even loosening the preload.

Incorrectly cut or installed spring spacer?
