Front fork oil

Hey all. Just wondering if anyone has thought about changing the front fork oil to a heavier viscosity? I think the front end is a bit soft. I know there are spring kits available but this is a cheaper start? Any feed back would be great!

bear in mind that the viscosity markings are not universal in all brands. one brand's 5W is another's 15w.
