Polaris Magnum 500

Hello I am new to this forum. I recently purchased a 2003 Magnum 500, and was looking to do some tuning up. She runs okay, dies a lot on idle but that may be partially because of old gas. The rear spring and rear shock are absolutely shot. I can just about extend the rear suspension entirely with my index finger. I am having some trouble locating reliable parts. I am not sure where to find the correct part numbers, and where the best place to purchase parts is. This is my first ATV. Any help you can provide on where I should start with parts purchasing, or what I should do for an initial tune up would be appreciated. Thanks!

You can look up and order parts at Rocky Mountain ATV, but you will find many parts are no longer available
