Tip is to drain them out into a measuring jug and put the same back in, sorry can't remember exactly what my blacklabels took. I actually changed down to 5w oil as I like really soft suspension. What forks are you changing the oil in are they the black labels or the crappy gold stock ones?
Make sure to pump all the old oil out preferably let them drain over night.

ok, nah 1 litre will do a couple of oil changes for your forks.
you could try about 20mls extra oil too to stiffen them a bit

if sign up at supercheap as a Club Plus member, it cost's you $5, and then you get $10 off your next purchase.
this weekend they had a 20% off storewide for members

they have the oil on special every now and then for about $12 a litre too.
some other shops might have it cheaper

Is there a large spring or anything that I have to watch out for when I undoo the top of the fork?

there will be a slight spring pressure when you undo the top cap, the cap will pop off the top of the fork tube a bit, but won't fall apart or spring out at you.
