1999 ski-doo mxz 600 with SC-10 III suspension

There is a problem with the SC-10 III in my sled. When i ride it and i hit a decent size bumb and i am going fast the suspension will collapse. I have went through it and made sure nothing is loose or broken and there isn't. Also it is really stiff and my brother has a 2002 mxz 800 with the same suspension and his is comfordably soft and has the same springs as i do in mine (same color markings on the springs) except his springs are rounded and mine are spuared. So i unhooked the springs to see if it was softer and it isn't. Could it possibly be the shock? Thanks

you most likely have a bad shock, remove the suspension and check it over, take the shocks off and stroke them out. if they are rebuildables have them done.

the shock is not rebuildable and when i took it out it compressed it all the way then the shock did not come back out. Is it suposed to be like that, isn't it a hydrolic shock?

If it has no pressure when you try to move it in either direction, then it is bad.
The shock will not return on it's own without a spring to make it do so.

I can push it in and it isn't really really hard but then it won't return on its own. Could this be why the suspension is collapsing?

The springs do the work.
The shocks only dampen the bounce effect of the springs.
When you pull the shock open again, is there resistance?

If you can colapse it by hand then I would think you are in need of a new one. I am pretty sure you should not be able to move it much by hand.

Even a new shock can be moved by hand. It just has a lot of resistance.
