[Healeys] 100 Rear Springs

As is so common with "offshore " products I'm having ongoing problems with
the currently available rear springs, in particular those for the 100.
It seems that all the usual suspects source these from the same
manufacturer in India and it is my suspicion that these are made from
substandard steel.
Typically leaf springs are made from 5160 steel which is incredibly
resistant to deformation and fatigue. I don't have facilities to determine
what steel is used to make these springs but it certainly isn't 5160!!
Has anyone found a source for rear springs which last more than a few years?
