Gambling with your retirement stash

Question: I’m 57 and I’m planning to retire at 66. Prior to this year’s stock market turmoil my 401(k) was balanced at 70% stock mutual funds and 30% bond funds. Now it’s 59% stock and 41% bonds. To take advantage of very low stock prices I was thinking about re-balancing to 75% stocks and 25% bonds. Does this sound like a good plan or should I just re-balance to 70% to 30%?
