Leaf springs do not usually break under compression, but on the rebound when the main leaf takes most of the stress. To minimize the possibility of this happening to you, periodically inspect the clips which hold the spring leaves together. If you have bolt-on clips, make sure the bolts are tight and the rubber inserts are in good condition.
If you have the bentstrap iron type without bolts, hammer them tight around the springs if they seem to have spread out.
