puch fork problems

i have a 1980 puch mx. the front fork bottoms out when i sit on it, and the springs dont really push the fork back into place. anyone know how to fix front forks?

The fork can be disasembled and the spring replaced. May be hard to find a new set of springs though...

...or just pull it apart and load up the springs and tube with grease, could be just dry. I've also seen aftermarket new chrome complete forks.

take them apart, and check the plastic bushings in them, they have 2 nipples on the inside, if they are broken then replace it clean it up and then grease them.
