how old is your battery? i just went through this a month ago...

sears sells an "international" battery with 700 CCA (as i recall) for about $95. i hate sears, so i kept on looking around....

i bought and "international" battery spec'd for the B5.5 with 875 CCA at Autozone for $59...

Just had to get one today... Got the Run of the Mill Duralast from Autozone for $63 after tax. 875 CCA if I remember correctly. I'd have to go check again. Anyway works, great 2 year replacement and 7year prorated warrenty.

I picked up an Optima Red Top battery from Costco for $100. Now, how do I hold it down to the stock mounting location? There is no 'ledge' on the side of battery like the OEM. Any ideas?

Hey, I saw an ad in Sears for these new Spiral batteries, they can be mounted in any position and are leakproof...like $130 though...

Just the standard red top. I really need to figure out how to hold this battery down.
