[Spridgets] Lever Shock Fluid Recommendation

Aside from replacing the front shocks on my Bugeye with new or rebuilt units right now, I'm looking for a quick and cost efficient fix to reduce sponginess. These shocks show no sign of leaks, but they're very spongy.?I was going to fill them with 30wt Castrol R like we did back in the day, but evidently that product is hard, or impossible to come by these days.

What are others using as a heavier than normal shock fluid for street use?

Next year I will be rebuilding the front end and will more than likely change the shocks at that time, so I am just interested in this as a stop-gap measure to hold me over until that time.
Thank you,
