I've got a 98 XC 600. Got a fox shock in the rear (that's how I bought it) and for some reason it sits really low. Sometimes just from its own weight it will sit and bottom out or be really low, other times like maybe after a ride it will stand up better. My thoughts are that the torsion spring is weak but I would like some other opinions. Any thoughts? Thanks!
I would recommend that you first pull your suspension and pull all the cross shafts and clean all of the old grease and any corrosion out first. Then re-grease and re-install and check. Also check to see if your shock needs rebuilt.
Sounds like your shock could be toast. Like steep said, pull the skid. If you can easily compress the shock by hand you have your answer. Depending on where you ride, if the sled feels like it is bucking up and down in bumps it is because you are a only relying on the rear tortion springs with no shock dampening.
What setting do you have the springs on? If it's adjusted to the stiffest setting and it won't hold the rear of the sled up, it's very likely that the springs are shot and need replaced. The other maintenance tips posted by steepndeep and xlt spartan is also sound advice and I would do those also.
