I've got a set of Corbeau A4's along with their brackets and use the stock seatbelts just fine. Although the airbags dont work currently because I didn't feel like hooking up any of the airbag equipment under the seats. lol. In order to do so there will be some serious cannibalism involved with the stock seats.

I've got a set of Corbeau TRS's with brackets and they fit fine as well. I recommend Corbeau seats highly, as I'm sure many on this site will. They are the finest seats south of Recaro/Sparco you can get without the mega narg prices.

Welcome to the site as well! Remember, were all here to help and if you have any problems, just find someone with a little experience on the site and we'll most likely be able to guide you in the right direction!!!

AND!!!! AND!!!! AND!!!! Head over to the Southeast forums. I'm a member. I live a few miles south in Mooresville, and we'd be more than happy to have you at the meets!!!! Here's the link! CLICK HERE!!!

I've got corbeaus in my car. I don't have airbags in my seats so the swap was pretty easy just had to swap the seatbelt buckles and harness.

Ok, for the people not wanting to drop a grand on new seats, has anyone tried the BOMZ seats off Ebay? And Street, not that theres anything wrong with it, but why do you want to stay with stock seat belts? I think 4 points are pretty cool, ive got them in my Jeep. You just need a good quick release system.

Be careful with afermarket seats. I learned that you can run into issues with not only safety but insurance issues if you ever were to get into an accident with them.

you would think that they would be considered safer especially with the 4 or 5 point harness holding you in.

just put my corbeau fx1 pro in the other day. seat is nice. holes for my 5 points I'm putting in as well. just took a bolt out of the bottom of the factory seats to mount the female seatbelt adapter. kept the factory belts in there for the cops. gonna use the 5 points for road racing.
