Hydraulics Tech - Suspension: Leaf spring
The following diagram is from the book "How To Build A Lowrider"

TRADITIONAL LEAF SPRING CYLINDER MOUNTING (this information also applies to straight axles) - If the vehicle is equipped with leaf springs, but universal mount cylinders are not used, a different mounting technique must be used. The cylinder mounts onto a leaf spring using a leaf spring bracket and frame mount. Here, the cylinder is shown mounted through the frame mount with the top edge of the cap pushing against the bottom edge of the frame mount. The cylinder's piston pushes down on a cap that rests atop the coil spring and at the bottom of the coil spring is a special leaf spring mounting that clamps onto the leaf spring.
