Back when I changed my alt. and battery, the mechanic told me that if you use the top posts on the battery, instead of the GM side posts, you get a better connection. Is this true?
And if so, can you convert your connections to fit the top posts instead of the side ones?
Also, what's the whole point that GM had by using side posts? I mean, besides being a few inches shorter in wire, what's the point?
It also seems like when it comes to options, there's more in regards to the top posts, ie. gold terminals
