How to install seats and harnesses
Hey guys just bought some corbeau Forza seats and some 5 point harnesses. I need some help installing these bad boys. Where do people usually attatch there harnesses to. Also how do I turn the seatbelt and airbag off in the 2005. Don't want the car to kill me or the passenger if were in those seats and the airbags go off. I appreciate any info. Thanks

pretyt sure you need a support bar that goes aloong the floor in the back, or you could just bolt them to the floor thought I heard that is not very safe.

the safest way and the best way to install 5-point harnesses is to have a bar put in right behind the top of the seats below the harness holes on the seat for the shoulder straps to mount to.

What do you connect the bar to. In SCCA regulation do you need a full cage or could it be a 4 point similar to a stock wrangler with a bar behind the seat?

the bar will have to be welded in there somwhere it depends if you want a full cage or partal...depends on your wantings

you worded it wantings. So that means that a cage is not necessary or what. I would want just enough cage to get by the rules. that's all

well its not only the rules, its if you get into an accident, its to make sure you get out of the car SAFE.

There is no 'safe' way to run a harness without a cage. Bolting your head in so it can't move, but not preventing your roof from being able to crush towards your head means you're more likely to be hurt in a rollover than wearing stock belts.

If you're wanting to see SCCA rules, go to - what the majority of people have on their cars are not scca qualified.
