They sit underneath the strut bearing on the strut rod, but you'll have pull your dust boot down in order to see them. The striker cap on top of the strut tube contacts the bumper during high wheel travel, preventing suspension over-travel and absorbing the energy of the impact.

In the rear, they are on the lower control arm, outboard of the spring. - easily visible.
