Hello, need suspension for advice 1999 Trek 6000 245lb rider!

Hi, new to the forum, getting back on my what I believe to be a 1999 Trek 6000 with Manitou sx-d suspension forks...

When I was riding this thing all the time, I was 225lb and I had to put the stiff springs and foams in the shocks to balance my weight. Now I get on the bike and I want to have even stiffer front fork suspension. What is the thing to do nowadays? Can I find some pneumatic shocks? Or is their even stiffer spring stuff to be had for my shocks?

I've been out of biking so long it seems like everything has changed, fork tubes are short, wheels are tall, bikes are smaller. Just give me some guidance. I went to my old standby "nashbar" and they seem to be a shell of their prior selves. It seems like they used to have anything you'd want, and now I couldn't find anything I wanted.
