Default Suspension Questions

I am new to the sport and recently purchased a 1999 600 xc and a 2000 700 xc.
I am about 220 lbs and feel like the rear suspension is sitting to low with me on the sled. It feels like the track is hitting the bottom of the sled. Is there anything that i can do to fix this I love these sleds!! Please anything will help.

have the shocks inspected.
the sled should sink a couple inches when you sit on the sled, the smoother the more you can have it sag,
when i was about 240 i could ride the same sled with the springs in med, or one in med and one in high. if the trails were rough enough to need both on high i usually couldnt last very long. you want to use as much suspension as possible without bottoming out.

Not sure if they we ever rebuilt. Both sleds have about 2400 miles on them. Is this something that should be done regularly?? How do I adjust the springs?? Is there a way to raise the rear?? Might be easier to loose some weight.
