You can't adjust the shock unless it is a clicker type unit (X-model). The shock's job is to dampen the oscillation of the suspension which is falling rat on your sled. Try to increase the rear spring preload to carry the operator weight.

Yes you can get heavier springs.
What you should have on right now are 503189443 RH GN/GN/GN and 503189445 LH GN/GN/GN Both are 11.11mm wire diameter with an opening angle of 95 degrees and length of 385mm.

The stiffer ones are 503189339 RH GN/GN and 503189338 LH GN/GN. Both are 11.11mm wire diameter with an opening angle of 90 degrees and 400mm length.

The GN/ means how many green stripes are on the spring coil (where it winds around the suspension shaft) The opening angle is how many degrees deviation between the short and long end of the relaxed spring. The length indicates how many wound coils.
