I’ve got a 2001 Polaris rmk 151”, and the ride height’s a bit low. Are there any kits I can purchase or adjustments I can make to get it another few inches off the ground?

Problem is, the front drive axel is fixed. So any changes to the rear suspension will change the attack angle of the track and if you raise up the front, you'll probably find that there is to much pressure on the skis.

Basics: The sleds suspension is balanced off the center. Lift either the front or back and you end up with to much ski pressure. 2001 should have the Xtra-10, which is about as good as it gets until the Axys came out.

Welcome
I agree, there are a few things you can try, and do 1 thing at a time so you can tell what did what!

Start with the front track shock, tighten it, you should loose all steering effort.
Next relocate the rear swing are bolts to the lower hole (raising rear end) Test
Did the steering come back?
If not then tighten the front springs to get there!
You may only get a couple of inches
But the suspension will be stiffer (more like a snow pro)
