Seat Belts

Were is the best place to find replacement seat belts for an 87 F150. I looked at LMC but they are not very descriptive on what eactly you are getting. Or does anyone have a part number.

Thanks

Look at some of the sponsor Ford parts vendors listed on the left side of the page. OEM parts will be pricey, but what price do you put on your or a loved one's life?

I found this in my cyberspace travels:
seat belt plus

I am interested too. My passenger belt sometimes does not retract.

I'd never, NEVER use a junkyard seatbelt as a replacement. You don't know if it's been in an accident and the belt stretched to nearly it's limits or not.

The universal ones out there do a great job, if you're not a purist. Even if they are made overseas, they MUST meet Federal safety specifications before being allowed here in the states.

It's your life...how much is it worth to you?

Do you automatically replace every belt in the used vehicles you buy? What's the difference between trusting those and pulling one out of a decent looking vehicle in a self service yard? I've done it before and would do it again.

Unless it's like most of them that are there right now with pink paint on the engine. In that case it got kicked to the curb while it still had life in it in exchange for the "oooh shiney! more debt? yes please!".

exactly what is wrong with the current ones? the retract mechanism? don't stick when clicked? the inertia stop? ..

you can get new webbing and have a 'sail-maker' (or any one with a HD sewing machine) 'restring' the old ones ..

are you kidding? they don't stretch !!!! .. ever wonder why they have those 'survival tools' to cut your belt if your in an accident?

sb webbing is one of the strongest, most stable cloth materials you can get .. kevlar is the only thing I can think of that'll out do it in strength and durability

Here is where you are mistaken.

Automotive seatbelts have a stretch (elongation) factor approx. 5%. I know because I have had to design and build a test gage for Chrysler in the past so they could batch test them.

Hey, like I said earlier...it's your life, not mine.
