Are all 3 Leaf Springs the same?

Just wondering if some are worse than others. If you had 3 thicker leafs it would be just as stiff as 4 thinner leafs. I've had 700-800 lbs in my 3 leaf and it didn't seem like it was sagging that much. My Dakota had a four leaf pack and the Tacoma with the 3 leaf looks about the same loaded.

I think it depends as much on metal temper and arch as much as thickness. Some leaf packs are longer and wider too.
