I need some batteries for my cutlass. but the batteries they sell here are a bit too much. anybody know where i can get some batteries for like 50$ or under, around Kansas area? Is it true that when u get power balls you need to have your springs cut so they are flat at each end? and not round? like so they sit flat straight up.

If you expect to get them for that cheap your building the wrong type of car.

My boy tried some from Interstate and they really didn't work out. Never held a charge for shit. A quality battery costs $100-$125 these days so expecting to get a decent battery for less than $50 is a little unrealistic.

i had a car back in 99 that had 10 refurbs and 8 of them lasted me a good 5-6 years and for my roadmaster i payed 50 a piece for 6 refurbed and they lasted me 2 years and are still in use showing no signs of quiting yet....but i did have 5 refurbs in my linc that where nothing but problems.kinda like a crap shoot really. im buying new for the cutlass but for a street car i think their a good route to go

your spring should sit in the cup, not the powerball... so you should be fine with a cut end going there..

I'm located at dodge city. I have somebody that will put in my hydros here but the guy who's going to put em in says the you need flat springs to put power balls in the back. Is that true? Does lil moe do frame wraps? How much for partial and full wrap?
