2005 F7 sno pro rear suspension

Anyone have any photos of how the rear suspension should be. picked up an f7 that was wrecked buddy i bought it from replaced a bunch of bent parts. well there is no suspension travel hardly at all.. and appears to only be like 2-3'' of shaft sticking out of the rear shock. is this normal?

also on the torsion springs there appears to be 2-3'' of it sticking out of the holder that is bolted to the rails, all the otehr sleds ive been around there is only an inch or so sticking out...


any help guys.. thanks

hmm

the shock sounds weird. remember theres alot of suspension travel on that sled> forget the number but look up the specs. Something doesnt sound right . The back is sitting much lower then the front isnt it??The torsion springs u normally see probabnly only have an inch sticking out with no load I believe that rod slides thru or exposes more as the rear is compressed if that makes sense to ya..
Sorry if this pic dont help thought I had nmore I do have one of the minus the suspension if its any good to ya???
