Changed fork springs now have play in them

I recently changed my springs to a heavier spring rate and changed out the seals and oil. I went with a 15 weight instead of 10. Ive changed plenty of seals and replaced the oil so Im not sure what the issue is! Everything feels great while riding but under braking the forks seem to have a space in them that the internals are bouncing around freely inside. Im not sure what to think or do. I bought the springs used from and 04 and put them in a 07 but I have some 04 springs and they look identical to my 07 so I dont think thats the problem. If anyone has seen this issue or knows of a fix I would really appreciate it. Thank you!
