I would recommend installing the appropriate spring rates front and rear for your weight. They are easy to install yourself and only cost about $110 each new. But you might be able to find some used ones in the classified section on TT. Make sure to set the rear sag at about 90mm.

If you have a bit more money..... You should think about having someone re-valve the forks to take out the harsh mid valve that you don’t' want/need for trail riding.

you would have to give some more info here. how much do you weigh?
and put a $$$ amount on economical.

It would be free to or virtually free to first set sag, play with the clickers and move the forks up or down in the clamps. You could also add some oil to the forks if they needed to be slightly stiffer?
