I noticed that if I set it up too tight that I had the arched back that you noticed. When I stick to the 30 degree rule by setting the suspension straps at a 30 degree angle it lies perfectly. So try to loosen your suspension a bit, maybe slide it higher on the tree and see if this helps.

I too have had the back crink before. I think it was because I was strung too tight in my WBBB.
