XLR Viper middle axle floating

We have a 2012 XLR Viper 305V14 triple axle. Anybody had problems with the middle axle floating?? By this I mean the middle axle on curb side will shift and let the tires rub together.... I have checked all the bolts and u bolts on axles. Verified the center pin in springs is right. About ready to pull my hair out, or what's left of it anyways!!!!! Went thru 4 tires in 5 days on the curb side axles. Blew front one, middle cords broke, rear one swole up 1 1/2" tall than the others, then blew the spare on middle axle, which blew the wheel skirt off...... It has the dexter ez flex on it. Unit has 235/85/16 G rated Gladiator tires on it, which have been fine until now. No cracks at all, proper air pressure. Any ideas appreciated!!!!!

Also, a 235/85 must be taller than stock? Yes, no?
