Is car service info shared amongst dealers?

Title says it all:

basically I am lowered on ACS, I was told by the shop doing the install that I have a torn CV Boot and a blown shock, they wanted to know if I wanted to continue with install or revert back to stock, I said go ahead and complete assuming the dealer would take care of this... WRONG. So if I put the car back to stock springs, will another dealer know that I was denied a warranty claim on a blown shock due to a aftermarket spring at the first dealer??

Basically I just want to go back to stock but want to be sure another dealer will fix my problems under warranty.

Yes, they share information. But if you go back to stock another dealer might help.
