Default Suspension question Polaris edge

Feel free to bitch slap me but, Im so green at sleds its not even funny.... I bought a 2001 Polaris 600 edge X, The rear suspension feels a little boggy meaning when I sit on it it bottoms out.. I called a local polaris dealer( in Chatham Ont.if your local you may know them) to see if they could replace the springs and was told no they replace the whole torque arm assembly including the shock at 600 bucks... They can't just replace the spring. Is this wright I thought I could just buy a couple new springs to lift it and stiffin the rear suspension. Can anyone give me some advice can I just have the springs changed..

Haha Belle River the world is small. I havent tried anything with the sled, I have zero experience with them, as for the type of suspension not sure its a 01 edge X Im guessing they are all the same. The springs are definatly dead when you push on the seat the sled bottoms out and doesnt come back up.

Sounds more like corroded shocks that are sticking and have no pressure in them.

I figured the shocks were more for dampening, and the springs would be what holds the weight up. Theres no corrosion or obvious oil leak at the shox. Hmmm. I need someone with experience to look at it I guess i just found it hard to beleive you can't replace the springs only.

How many miles does the sled have, my guess is that the shocks needs rebuilding (usually every other year is a good time to get them rebuilt). And if you're a bigger guy Polaris offers "big boy" rear torsion springs that are a little stiffer then the stock ones.

Sled has a lot of miles 6000, I'm a 210lbs 6'1''...my guess is the shock may need a rebuilt. What does a rebuilt cost??
