The origonal battery size seems bigger and heavier than it needs to be.
When you remove it you'll see a hole in the batttery tray for the origonal bolt and clamp that holds down the battery about 3 inches back from the front.
Get the less expensive next size shorter length, same width, same hight battery that fits in there using the origonal clamp and bolt and everything works fine.
Costs less and takes a little weight out of the car while leaving a little room in front of the battery for other things is you like.

I use the standard Walmart "Everstart" batteries for my cars and have had good luck with them. I don't thnk there's much difference in quality if there is any and they cost less than others and seem pretty fresh because there's always a little manufacture date sticker on the top of them. I've always found one less than a month old so I guess alot of people buy Walmart batteries and there's a good turnover.
