Look at Black Lab's 650 Fork Rebuild, pretty much the same for the DL1000, save for the parts.
Make sure you have ALL the correct parts before you start. Double check the actual parts once you receive them.
If you replace the springs, a lot of us have gone with the Sonics.
It is very straight-forward, pay close attention to the tool you will need to seat the seals.
I used a 3" section of a ripped 2 x 4. I used a 3" drum sander on my drill press to round out the inside and form a very thin arc. This worked like a charm for seating the seals. I liked it so much, I kept it, if I get a chance, I will post a photo of it.
