OEM seats = 65 lbs
Braum seats are 25 lbs (not including the mounting bracket)

Comfy, look good, weight savings, & cures my OCD for my seating position;
Worth it.

I want. Stock seats suck "lazy boy" truly is how i would explain them

Thank you.

kurazy kracka I love how low they are, OEM sat way too high.
I've never noticed the seat belt being too high on my neck. you have adjusted the seatbelt height on the pillar right?

Got them during a black friday sale and saved $300.00.

I haven't bothered tackling the seatbelt issue just yet, got too many other things to complete.

How to remove front seat belts?

The seat belts were manageable with the stock "lazy boy" seats that the GTO came with. (I'm only 5'8".)

I installed Braum Seats which feel great but the seat belt now rests against my neck.

I bought the Braum Seat Belt guides, but since they are made of only leather with no reinforcement the leather stretched and is doing nothing so the seatbelt rests against my neck again.

I would like to route the stock front seat belt through the hole in the Braum seat, but I'd like to know how to remove the seatbelts "properly" before I go diving into this project. Or does anyone have a better alternative than removing the seat belt to run it through the seat then reinstall.

Yes, ultimate fix would be to be taller, trust me, I've been trying.
