The booklet might be only for the Canadian customers, i'm not sure.
It's just 3~4 pages that explain how to turn the lock nuts after alignment.
It can be scanned and post here, if you really want.

so its clear now, we must go to dealer to not only get the inspection (even if alignment has not been done, thats my case) but also to get the labels to be placed in the proper location so 3rd party alignment shops are aware of the proper procedure.

Talk to my dealer and was told the notices are going out and it was by vin#"s so mine should come in January. When I get the notice then bring it in.

I believe in safety, education, and enforcement, not banning, ignorance, and blame.

As far as I know, the blue colored struts & shocks only appeared on the 'Sport' model. They are manufactured by Tokico.
