Brake line

I was looking in some books on recalls and I saw one for a "Left front brake hose or pipe that rubbed the cruise control" It was suppossed to be changed by the dealer and they were suppossed to put a decal on the radiator cross tie. Does anyone know how You can tell if this has been done to Your car?? I assume this was only for the 89's

I will have to look and see if I can see it rubbing on the cruise bracket. I was curious if anyone had seen the recall done and the tags applied
