    Today I've been putting the D35 to its limits, I basically put a damn rock on the bed to see how the suspension behaves. http://prntscr.com/9r9dwh

    And the leaf springs are crying. xD http://prntscr.com/9r9ehr

    But no matter how much stress they get, they never break, they even bend more than 45°: http://prntscr.com/9r9gps

    Even after hitting the rear suspension like this: http://prntscr.com/9r9j8c

    The truck just flown and made a 720° spin in mid air because the rear suspension did not give up. http://prntscr.com/9r9jha

    This is how the leaf spring ended, it just bent a bit! http://prntscr.com/9r9k0s

    What they do in reality is if they are compressed past flat they reverse and lift the wheels.
    I have had to correct this with a crowbar in the past after drastically overloading work utes.

    But in BeamNG they reverse and go back to default position by themselves (With a 3.000 Kg rock loaded), and you can do it 100.000 times and they just dont give up.

    It could also be the shocks. They probably would break though. It could also be the solid rear axle because that's what the bushings push down on. Not sure how strong those are. Who knows, this could actually be a bug.

    This is inaccurate behavior, I have no idea how springs are modeled in BeamNG so have no idea what the problem may be but they should self correct.

    with the semi (front) the harder i hit it the more height it gets
    but tbh its just metal.... maybe its special memory alloy

    Talking about the T75, what would happen if I just hit the front suspension like this? http://prntscr.com/9rljh6

    Well it is obvious, it will just break right? Well...

    Because the leaf springs are unbreakable (And also the whole front suspension), http://prntscr.com/9rljvv

    They grab the truck's frame, that's right, the leaf springs are able to bend the cement mixer frame: http://prntscr.com/9rlk28

    And stop the whole truck: http://prntscr.com/9rlkat

    And remember, the frame never hit the box: http://prntscr.com/9rll5v

    So what will happen if I hit the rear suspension that doesn't have leaf springs and it is the one that supports the drum???

    Well... it breaks, like it should! http://prntscr.com/9rlln2 http://prntscr.com/9rllvs

    i ment more like verticle loading like applying sun gravity and setting it back to earth or about -100 back to earth

    i meant more like vertical load for both (oddly compression seems to do nothing on the pickup but on the semi...
    semi before compression

    compression

    release (arched springs)


    normal (springs are almost flat)

    Front

    after a heavy jump



    see how the sprints raise?
    now back to normal

    sorry my bad
    i know its odd
    but i've yet to find a way to raise stock height it always breaks something but when i bash it it goes higher

    i think its because of the tension in it or something... being flat at stock any load will reverse it and sudden release will flip it around

    also its the way beam works everything stretches or compresses or just breaks at the node (hinge)
    even if the springs dont break something else will
    i'd imagine if you tired hard enough you could flatten normal springs but leafs are just slices of metal so i'm not sure how that works
