any good sus forks for old style head set

Hi, I have been offered a old light specialized rockhopper for 50 and love it, how ever I would love some sus forks as after a fall a few years ago my wrists get stiff, however it has the "old" style of headset withe the threads and I cant find any forks that might fit. Can anyone help me or come up with ideas??
thanks

They used to be made for 1" & 1 1/8" threaded headsets a few (or more) years ago. Try scouring ebay.

Replace the headset with a threadless one. Then buy any new threadless fork.
If it's not 1 1\8 steerer, I wouldn't bother with the swap.
