    Yes shock loads on a wet cell is not a good thing for a battery. One of my battery hold/downs broke once after a jump and the battery hit the hood burning two nice hold in it and melting the posts it was a J**p anyways. Got it fixed with some duct tape and bailing wire (NO JOKE and YES I am a REDNECK) made it 60 miles home on the whitey rig job.
