Fork Spring replacement

Hi All, This is my suspension fork... Suntour NRX D HLO. 63mm. Hydraulic Speed Lockout / Preload

I'd like stiffer suspension than what my fork offers now. My idea is to change to a stiffer spring to achieve that. I wrote to Suntour asking about this. This was their response... "It does not appear as though spring kits are available for the NRX forks."

Are stiffer 3rd party springs available for my fork or is a whole new fork my only option? All comments are welcome, thanks!

(btw, Preload is already set to max!)
 
To be honest, that's a very cheap fork, city-bike fork. I'm not sure it's worth the time and effort required, along with the money, to start switching springs. What are you doing that's blowing through the travel?

With my suspension on, my speed is reduced. I'd like a scenario with a stiff suspension that doesn't greatly reduce my overall speed. Roads around my area are not in great shape everywhere, so I'd like to have suspension for them. I'm basically looking for the best of both worlds in a stiff suspension.
