As for replacement working leaf springs, have you looked in the PSCThat's a very particular copper alloy, beryllium copper, a very strong and stiff material used for non-ferrous springs (plain copper would be, bluntly, awful). Terrific stuff when cold worked, but hard to form into shapes. The Kemtron parts were excellent.
