Stock springs. I pulled mine completely apart yesterday and cleaned them thoroughly. You definitely need some "special tools" to get all the grunge out. I reassembled them this afternoon and will install them on the bike in the morning. My front end was really stiff, so I am trying some 5wt oil to see what I get.

Thanks for the help! I'll report back.
