Exclamation Shower Spout Leak

Hello, I am having trouble with my Symmons Temptrol bath system. When the shower is switched on a lot of water will come out (steady thick stream) of the spout continuously (this is not the normal drip you're normally supposed to experience). I replaced the diverter thinking it was that easy fix, yet the problem still persists. I donít know if it could be the valve seats (aka hot and cold seats) or what? Any input or thoughts would be great, thank you!

This is the system I have to help if needed.

My mistake I thought I was more clear. It's not leaking around the spout just coming out of the spout. You know how with temptrols and such, slow drips are normal to come out of the spout when shower is on? Well, this is a heavy stream coming out. There are no leaks when the shower is off. It is a little hard to turn the knob/spindle off to make it stop dropping, but that's been present for years, haha. To repeat, the "leak" is coming from the head.
