How about a video or something?  Stiff is subjective.  Hard to tell if there is a problem or not without more information.

I got them tore apart already but I weigh 200 pounds and if I throw all my weight to the front end, I maybe get a inch-inch n a half of movement, now when I tore them apart the nut that's on the bottom of the fork leg that holds that rod that goes on the inside of the bottom fork leg together that nut was loose idk if that would have anything to do with it or not

And that rod was slopping around inside the lower fork leg, should that little rod be completely stiff?

That sounds bad.  Is the rod screwed up?  Threads still good?  Any metal debris in the fluid?

That should make them softer
