Right no offense to the site sponsor... But the popular online store that ROCKs lists it under $2K beating one from RACK.

Been there done that shortly after my purchase 3 years ago at 60K miles. New buckles and repair kit with gold-plated connector pins. And Autel scanner that is able to reset airbag light.
