Officially i don't think so. There is no skewer to guide the spring so it can wear against the inside of the fork leg.
Unofficially - I did it with mine with a cut down speed spring and it held for a year or so before I was told the above...

How much room is there between spring and fork leg?
Could use some 0.7mm Polyester sheet between the two. This is slippy, hardwaring and will protect legs.

Just a thought..

pop the circlips off the bottom of the legs and pull...

lower legs come off and you are left with 2 stacks of elastomers... undo the metal bot at the bottom, slide elastomers off... :)

i kept the elastomers on one side and cut soem slices off the old one to make they sit right on that leg. then go a only boxxer yellow sprig cut it to lenght diagonally so it would sit well in the leg. then i go a shim washer and put that below the cut end of the spring just in case. then i cut some of the old elasomer and pot a whole in it and slid it half way up the spring(Elasomers drag for dampning so you need this. Greases with prep m and put them back together. run sweet. just like new.
