From a personal standpoint, I've always serviced forks around the 20k mark for mileage. I probably wait too long. When I dump the old stuff it smells torched. When I ride it after doing the service is feels noticeably better.

Springs don't typically wear out. I'm of similar weight and have had good results with stock springs in some bikes and better results with springs more matched to my weight. Sometimes I don't like the aftermarket springs. If you are doing the service and work, I'd spring (ha!) for the springs matched for your weight and swap them out. If they aren't to your liking, you can swap them back and sell them.
