Default Racing seats and seat belts

Hey guys, I'm getting pretty tired of my seat belt resting on my neck and collar bone. There has to be a better way to be fastened in. I was considering racing seats, but I'm not sure what my options are to get better seat belts without putting in a harness bar. Is there a way to have better seat belts without having a roll cage or harness bar? Also, are their any other racing seat alternatives (such as putting in Dodge SRT seats) besides spending a ton of money on Corbeau?

I swapped in seats from a SN and they have that little guide for the belt next to the headrest. Keeps it in place, but I never had a complaint about my belts with stock seats.

You must be pulling some serious negative G's with those awesome brakes you have. LOL !!!

Just teasing ya.

LOL! Yeah it's all good man. On any other subject I wouldn't bother debating anybody. You want to tell me the 302 can handle more power than the 351w... sure go for it. But brakes will potentially save your life, I cannot in all good conscious not debate a topic that will put somebody's life at risk. But it's all good.

Do the SN95 seats bolt right up, or is there any modification to the brackets? Racing seats are cool, but it's the seat belt that bothers me more.

Yep, SN seats bolt right in, using the Fox seat tracks. 15 min. job and much better seats.

Nice! How do they hold up against turns? I'm sure they are not as good as racing seats, but they are probably better than the foxbody stock seats right?

Well, your right, they're definitely not racing seats. But compared to my worn out stockers, which the seat foam completely deteriorated, leaving me to brace the bottom with a couple wood boards and some packing foam wrapped in towels, these SN seats are AWESOME !!!

But you will slide some in hard corners.
