Not unless you have the proper tools to rethread the inside of the new "top" of the tubes. You need to purchase new fork tubes and swap them out on your lower sliders.

Good Luck

Front shocks are vary soft. drained and filled to spec

If the dampening action is still to soft for you, you'll have to drain the forks again and this time put a heavier weight oil in them. If you put 20 wt. oil in last time, try 30 wt. this time. Always use a good quality "fork oil" never just plain engine oil.
