Your 99 WR400F comes stock with .46 fork springs and a 5.0 shock spring. The stock fork springs is fine for your weight, however, the shock springs needs to be replaced with a 5.4 rate.
The 5wt oil you have will be fine. I would recommend 90-100mm of oil height. Measuring without the fork spring installed is correct.
The biggest issue with your present setup is the under sprung shock. The bike will have a more balanced feel once you update the shock spring.
Take Care, John

I have heard from several members here that MXTUNER does a fine job as well as the other big names. You might also consider MX-Tech. They have a shop in western PA. Oh and by the way, John Curea runs it so, your getting great advice.
