A method of making a multi-piece head suspension for a rigid disk drive.
The method includes providing a first layer including a mounting region
with an integral boss tower attached to a stiffener by one or more
positioning tabs; attaching a second layer including a spring region to
an interface between the mounting region and the stiffener; attaching a
flexure to the stiffener; and removing the positioning tabs. The flexure
can optionally be a portion of the second layer.
