Shipping Blocks

I know this has been done to death but I feel the dealer may have left the shipping blocks in my new e92.

I want to check this myself. Do I just pull the rubber up then press it back down after or is there a specific technique?

Thanks for the help

here you go! good luck looking for them. they should look like white donuts. Generally, you can't visually tell whether the blocks are in or not (looking at fender/wheel gap) without taking the wheel off to inspect yourself. The block simply just prevents compression of springs, it doesn't artificially lift the car's springs higher, that's why you can't just use your eyes to inspect it without wheel removal.

I could tell without removing a wheel, and they do raise the front end by about an inch. The front on mine didn't look right and I could fit 4 fingers in the tire-fender gap. Just slide the rubber dust boot for the strut up and you should be able to see the white plastic spacers.
