Judging from the picture and not seeing them on the car... maybe you didn't have enough pre-load on the rear springs when they were in the spring buckets??? But definitely, if you mechanic tells you there is some thing wrong but not what exactly is wrong then he, himself is wrong.

He mentioned that the rear springs were loose and that the bottom lock was all the way down and not locked so the height could of change with me driving tha car more, is that posible?

Yeah if they were loose then the pre-load was not set when they were installed. Also, if the lock ring wasn't tightened down enough, then the vibrations from driving could have loosened it up.

The rear collar wouldn't move much at all if the car is on the ground. Your mechanic needs physics class
