Xantia Suspension

My Xantia is bouncing at the front as if there is no damping at all. Is this a symptom of bad spheres ? I thought when they wore out the ride was supposed to be too hard rather than too soft ?
I got some replacement spheres from GSF but cannot get the old ones off. I used a strap wrench but kept breaking straps. Should it be this hard ? Have I depressurised properly (lever in minimum with engine on, loosen screw on main accumulator). My car is model with anti-sink valve.
I also found that after syphoning half a litre of fluid out of the reservoir it is still above max. Does overfilling matter ?
