Default HD Front leaf springs

I bent the front leaf spring so i heated it up and bent it back only for it to break in half when i was putting it back in. I see three different options while browseing the web and wanted opinions on each.

There is the "standard" duty single leaf, the "heavy" duty single leaf, and i saw a "heavy" duty 3 leaf. I didnt know they made a multi leaf front spring. It looks tough but i thought it may be a stiff ride.

I have a lift and use it hunting and utility work. Im thinking about the single leaf heavy duty. Anybody have experience with the different options?

Springs are hot formed and tempered . . . reheat them improperly without the tempering (stress relief), they become brittle . . .

Never heat a spring.I work for a Spring-Shop,They have to be heated to 1950 deg.F.Then,formed,qench in oil,then reheated to 950deg.,then air-cool.Otherwise,great sadness persuesNot sure about the heavy-duty spring for a Club-Car but on the Ez-go they are definitely better!

Yea,Spring-Steel needs to be Quenched in a special-grade quench-oil,then reheated and slowly cooled to temper properly.

well, i hate to not have some first hand advise on the different front spring options for a CC but i went on and ordered the HD single leaf. I think the three leaf front spring will be too stiff for my application.
