PSA: Check your suspension for shipping pucks

I had the wheels off today to clean them and decided to check under one of the boots to see if any pucks left because of reading this. None was there but I couldn’t get the boot to stay back down when trying to to put it back. Anyone else run into that? I just left it so I wouldn’t break it or something, will just have the dealer fix it when I get the oil changed in two weeks

I think the boot pretty much automatically goes back down in place when you lower the car back down. It seems to be in place now that I lowered the car. Anyone else notice that?

Still issues with this. Just bought a 2021 autobahn. Noticed front was a bit high and on the first canyon drive noticed front lot stiffer than rear causing it to push in moderate turns that should have been within reason. This morning jacked it up and what did I find. Three pretty pink pucks. Rides and handles much better now.

I'm bewildered by the replies #35 and #36. As I understand it, the cars are shipped with one puck on each damper i.e. two on each side. Is there a third one somewhere on each side?

I like to do as much work on our cars as possible by myself, but nowadays I struggle getting under the car and I'm trying to avoid jacking, removing wheels etc. Therefore, before I make the effort, I want to know what to expect.
