Yellow plastic on 35 edition suspension

I got my 35 edition 2 weeks ago, I love the car, but I hear a cracking sound when going through a bump and it feels a bit unstable at 100km+ speeds.

I took a look at the suspension and I found a yellow plastic part between the springs. I dont think this plastic will last long as it already have some signs of wear and im assuming this plastic part is there only for transport and the dealer forgot to remove them...im attaching some pictures of them and I would really appreciate somebody tell me if theres something I need to worry about or not.

Thanks

The pictures aren't working but based off what you've described those should be removed. They are only for transport to prevent the front end from scraping. Jack the car up and pull them out.

Remove them, they create a huge wheel gap, and and inhibit proper turning, and maneuvering.

Have the dealer remove them and make them give you a service record of it. Don't do it yourself. Even though most likely nothing bad will happen, you'll want proof if it does.

Have the dealer remove them - they should have done it in the first place!
