You paid money for oem seatbelts? More than free+shipping or junkyard costs?

Is that the CG lock!? I've always wondered if they worked or not. I hate driving my wife's car with the crappy stock belt.

The CG lock is great. It holds you in very well for a tri-point belt. I didn't think of this when I got it, but it makes the ride more tolerable since it doesn't let you come up off of the seat and then slam down.

Me too. I'd like to know how I can go about it. Ever since installing the antiroll bar I've been facing that issue.

Is it an issue with the belts themselves? I still have my old ones, and they worked fine.

We'll see. I'd like some other sort of seat someday. I remember liking Sav's seats but I forget what they were.

Look close at the system. The reason why the seatbelt doesn't retract properly after roll bar installation is because the belt drags on the housing. The BF guides attempt to reposition the belts to get a better angle into the housing, but if there's contact, the belts still won't retract properly. It's also possible that drag induced where the belts contact the BF guides themselves can prevent successful retraction.

They retract part way, but not all the way, I really feel like I need to rewind the clockspring or something as the don't really bind.
