So I was cleaning the LPR on my CSL when I took out the piston and out popped the front spring, weirdly bent.

Easy and cheap enough to replace it, but I was wondering if anyone would have insight on how this happened?

My guess is that it wasn't properly aligned when I put it in after a previous disassembly, or too much of an adjustment on the LPR, even though I haven't any issues with velocity.

i've seen high strength MTB shock springs do this when they get compressed too much too fast... usually a weight issue that causes the spring to "slip" like that when compressed

All the springs can bend under the right circumstances. Normally it's indicative of a problem during assembly.
