this is wat i found for the oem springs

GENUINE POLARIS FRONT HEAVY DUTY FRONT SPRINGS

These Heavy-Duty Front Suspension Springs have a spring rate of 128 lb./in. and help a Sportsman’s front suspension deliver optimal performance in all conditions, on all terrain and when carrying large loads. They are stiffer than stock springs and are ideal for any Sportsman carrying a heavier load such as a plow blade, and for riding over extreme terrain. They also help increase lift during plowing snow.
Fits all 05-12 Polaris Sportsman models

BUY IT NOW FOR $71.95

I put the Polaris HD front springs on my 2011 800. At the time the machine had 500 miles on it. The HD springs took the sag out of the front suspension which was about 1.5". I just put the epi HDs on the back last week and what a difference. The machine corners so much better now because of reduced body role. Well worth the money!
