Why a sway bar, heave spring, and wheel springs?

A place to discuss the characteristics of the cars in Formula One, both current as well as historical. Laptimes, driver worshipping and team chatter does not belong here.

Happy to learn.

So, have we come to the conclusion that having all 3 "springs" is beneficial?
No. We've concluded that individual wheel springs are redundant if you have an ARB and heave spring. You do not need them for tuning or performance purposes. The reason they are used is for things like convenience (easy to change).
