My polaris ultra has the xtra-10 suspension, and it sits really low. I had the fox shocks recharged last fall, and I have only put 100 miles on them this year. I am thinking that the suspension springs might be worn out. Does anyone have any ideas on how to raise up the back end of my snowmobile? Thanks.

I cant tell from your post if you have allready done the usual things to stiffen your suspension. tell us what you have tried and we will help from there. I have the same sled .

I had the dealer stiffen the fox shocks for me, but that really has been it. I was thinking of putting new springs on it, but I haven't done so yet. My ultra sits lower than other ultras that I have seen. <BLOCKQUOTE id=quote><font size=1 face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica" id=quote>quote:<hr height=1 noshade id=quote>Originally posted by johncooniv:

The shock wont do anything for the preload. friend of mine had the same problem. I have the xtra10 and so does he his sat lower and bottomed out lots
he put a new shock in too. but what solved it was new springs. he got stiffer 2up springs and planned on adjusting them softer if needed. Sits taller now.

Did you turn the tension adjusting blocks to high ? did you check the location of the rear scissor stop and put it in the forward position.

The tension blocks are in the high position, and the rear scissor stop is in the forward position.
