Rear suspension control arm cover??

So my new 2019 2SS had some plastic parts in a bag, in the trunk.


I read the instructions for the front brake cooling and decided I would not need those parts as I will not race the car.


Then there were two plastic covers for the rear control arms.


Why didn't GM put them on during assembly?


I finally found the plastic push pins in the storage area under trunk floor, of course the package had been opened and there were only seven, 8 required.




Any comments on these covers is appreciated.

These should've been installed by the dealer as part of the pre-delivery inspection process. I'd take the car back and make them do it with me watching.

Thanks.
That's OK, I've already got them on.
That is why I don't go back to dealers, you can't trust them to do anything.

I have these too, but after trial fitting these, the linkage rods attached to the control arm for the sway sensors are in the way. Did you cut the covers to clear these?

No cutting. Mine didn't interfere with anything, all holes lined up nicely and fit seemed good.

My dealer denied it was on the PDI document. I installed them myself without any clearance problems.
