Shocks for 98 rmk

So riding today I noticed my shocks are not working. At all. If I'm stopped and step on the side it will sink, bit if I het completely off it stays down on the side I stepped down, I can pick it back up and it sits square but it ain't right.

What are my options? Also the back has almost no.travel on bumps I can hear the track hitting the tunnel . I ride 30- trail/70- powder.

Springs hold it up, shocks just dampen.
Check the springs, make sure that the suspension is greased at the pivots and is not binding.

I understand that... Which is why it sits square, but it won't bring itself back up, shocks have constant upward pressure which would keep it from falling over no?
