……

I’ll add one correction to that statement. The correct term in “leaf springs” not relief springs. These are the flat bars of metal that are banded together and have a slight curve to them. Not to be confused with actual coiled springs.

The more useful kind are ones known as the overload leaf springs. Usually on pickup trucks on up. Not really flat but better than the actual leafs which have quite a bit of curve to them.
