Help question on shock please.......

I have a xtx 700 and i want to change the rear shock spring so it will ride a lot better i was watching the machine work during a ride and the rear set up is my problem.My buddy and i changed the shocks around from the front to the back and it rides 5 times as good,we noticed the spring on the rear shock is crap I dont have the extra cash right now to put kings,fox or a good aftermarket shock on it so i was going to just help it what i could.Anyone know what the spring rate is on a XTX i am sure the xt 650 is the same and the length of the rear spring,I know i can take it off and measure it but i was trying to find out so when i do take it off i will have my new springs to put them on so i will only haft to do it one time.The xtz i have read a lot on the shock spring pounds and 14 inch length but i not for sure what i need for my xtx 700.
thanks guys any info would be appricated

take off one and measure the ID ... both Summit Racing and Jeggs have springs and different spring rates [weight ratings] .. as well as I believe Prestige [one of our members / vendors] that can fix your spring rate issue.

name is Gary or hey you if ya forget

2009 Prowler XTZ , couple things added here and there
'83 CJ7 / SBC + whole lot added here and there
'01 Dodge / Cummins / Dually, a ton of stuff added here and there

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE NEWBIES ...
1. Bring in a good load of firewood for the pit
2. start the morning coffee , strong but not burnt / boiled down , IMPORTANT start it early as many of us old farts get up early !!
3. sit a spell and swap some lies with the best of us
