95 XLT Special suspension

I have a 95 Polaris XLT Special. I have Fox shocks in it. I had the shocks rebuilt. When I push down on the rear of the sled it won't rise back up. I bought new springs for it. Will this correct the problem? If so how do I replace the springs. Thanks

Make sure everthing is moving and nothing is binding. I had to take my wife's rear skid completly apart to clean everything. Rust builds up in all of the pivot points and makes the rear suspension tight. Grease all of the spots that has fittings. Even when everything is working as it should, it still shouldn't come all the way up. With me on my wife's XLT Sp, it still 4 inch's down from all the way up.

The only other thing it could be is the shocks. One of my friends had his shocks rebuilt, but he got them back in worse shape than when he sent them in.

Thanks

Thanks for the info. The pivot points seemed fine when I tookthe shocks out...but I will re-check. Could worn springs cause this problem?

Check to make sure you intalled the shocks and linkages in the proper spots. I had mine out this fall and know it is confusing finding the proper locations to mount them.
