Thank you, Alex
.70 is a very large increase over the stock .48kg springs. With the stock valving it won't be the best ride (not any worse than you are already experiencing). I'd recommend completing a revalve at the time of a spring swap as well, and would be more than happy to share a few stacks if you are capable of doing the work.
The mid stroke is the major issue on these forks and needs to be addressed as well as the rebound valving when swapping to springs of this rate.
Typically depending on the spring manufacture the I'd of the springs is too large therefore the spring guide needs to be trimmed down 1 to 1.5mm so the guide can travel through without any binding.
