I don't often buy oem dealer parts, but for seatbelts I think I would bite the bullet for the reasons you've already mentioned.

source for replacement seatbelts

I'm going to replace the passenger seatbelt/retractor in my 91 Toyota Celica. Given how important they are, I don't want to buy one that's not top quality. Is there an internet source that I can depend on for getting good seatbelts.

if the parts say "replacement part", does this mean it's not oem?

It should or will say "OEM replacement".

If it just says "replacement", it could be made by anyone.

Replacement belts do have to meet a certain safety criteria, so a non-oem belt may be fine.

I found a good (better than my original) seat belt for my '88 Ranger at a junk yard. Cheap..and works a lot better.
It may not be easy getting an OEM from Toyota on a 16 year old car!?!?
