No basically as way to short. Let a load of air out of your front works and ride along, you will note thats its nose down all the time which is exactly what it would be like with 100mm forks. Whenever changing you dont want to go much more than 20mm extra and never less unless its on climbs and you want to drop the front down using an on the fly travel adjust like my manitous have or fox talas's

The suntours may be a bit shorter than other forks so you could possibly get away with some decent 130's like <08 Rock Shox Revelations. You need to measure the axle to crown height of your forks then compare to others and ask people on ebay etc to confirm the length of theirs (ooer)

See on here for some recent lenghts and how to measure http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.php?t=470024
