A fork seal leak of that magnitude might get cured temporarily with a good cleaning with a SealMate, however, if the seal is nicked at all, it won't.
The Gen1 forks are simple to rebuild... I'd just go ahead and do that... however, those bikes had very weak fork springs, undersprung for all but the lightest weights... might I also suggest a spring upgrade to get you in the ballpark.
Traxxion has a good plug and play fork spring kit, spacers & everything precut to what you need. After you install them, you'll find you have a new bike.
Now that rear shock.... same deal... either aftermarket or Gen3 shock will help immensely as spring rate is much higher.... how much do you weigh is the question.
Keep yer stick on the ice....
