rear shocks locked up

Im just getting 954 together and im working out the bugs.i finally sat on the thing after about two weeks of working on it,and i realized the rear shock wont budge a i looked at it and the previous owner had the spring maxed out.way beyond factory.i figured he liked to ride fat chicks are something.
After going threw the bike i realized this guy was a real goon i dont put nothing past i figure go threw all the suspention and set it back at factory.i backed off the spring to the forth click.i foget which adustment out of the two smaller was at factory the other was four off.which made no cents.but still this spring is giving no play at all.
A friend of mine that went to mmi for4 years said, if those shocks are fully extend they lock up.i never had a problem like this.i think he said it was a gas shock are something
