Abstract A head suspension assembly includes a magnetic head slider with at least one thin-film magnetic head element, an actuator fixed to the magnetic head slider for performing precise positioning of the at least one thin-film magnetic head element, a support member for supporting the actuator, a flexible first lead conductor member with one end electrically connected to the at least one thin-film magnetic head element, at least part of the first lead conductor member being formed on the support member, and a second lead conductor member with one end electrically connected to the actuator. At least part of the second lead conductor member is formed on the support member. The support member has a first portion on which the one end of the first lead conductor member is formed and a second portion. The first portion is individually separated from the second portion.
