XL125 Suspension help!

Anyone know where I can find information on stiffer fork springs and suspension mods for a 1978 Honda XL125? I am 165lbs and I bottom the front wheel out (wheel to fender) every time i go over a rut or big tree root. The front suspension has probably never been serviced. I would assume it needs new oil and seals, but I wanted to know where I would be able to find stiffer springs if i'm tearing into it. I'm not planning on taking it over motocross jumps, but i would like a little improvement. I have yet to find a place that sells stiffer fork springs for the XL125, would springs from a newer bike work? On the road it does just fine besides the usual front dipping under hard braking force. Any enlightenment would be greatly appreciated.
