the ride height comes mostly from the springs. if your sled has a lot of miles on it, it might not be a bad idea to get some new springs. if the shocks are rebuildable shocks, you would have to take them off and inspect them to see if they need rebuilding/recharging.

That is to low. I would buy the springs for both sides and while i have the shocks off, get them rebuilt, if they need it.

just the spring, i think they are probably around $15-$20 each for springs for that sled. what kind of shocks does it have? are they rebuildable? i'll have to look but i might be able to tell you a place you can get springs.

does it have anything written on them? are they threaded? do you know if they are original? any chance you could take pics?

i'm still looking for the springs. i think jrgraham used to have them. i bought some for my old sled. but haven't found them yet.

yeah, those are fox shocks(rebuildable). you can and probably should get those rebuilt if you've never had them done. how long have you had the sled? in the general forum there's a sticky topic about getting your shocks redone. avid suspensions is run by one of the members of this site, the price is very reasonable.

springs lose their tension after a while, happens to all springs. it's a relatively old sled even just sitting around the springs will sag. you should probably get new springs, but in the mean time you can turn the adjusters up to add more spring tension, that's why the shock bodies are threaded.

it looks like those springs are already turned up quite a bit which probably means they are well past their prime. i say you should definately get springs and get the shocks rebuilt. especially if you want to jump it. you want healthy springs and shocks if you're going to jump it, it will take a lof of the impact instead of transfering it directly to the chassis.
