Mx'ing my dr250, needless to say susp. Issues

Any cheap and easy ways to beef up my dr 250s suspension ? I am interested in putting a dirt model shock and forks on there, but I worry about just buying another blown out shock that needs rebuilt, I'm somewhat handy but I have no experience with rebuilding the shock and forks.

This my sound silly but i managed to beef up my xl 185 folks by finding the right size car valve springs to use as preload spacers, but had to use a little less folk oil because of the extra room taken up by the springs. Worked for me. For the rear shock, maybe a stiffer spring?

You are my hero in this picture! Lol I'm researching swapping over rm suspension to my 98 dr350.

Lol thanks man. I gave up on the dr sold it last weekend. Just got a crf250r. The dr was just soo heavy and was going to need a refreshed top end, rebuilt suspension. Too much , I sold it and got something else.
