    One of my batteries is dead and I was just wondering if I should buy the best 900 CCA, 1000 CA for $70 a piece or go with a cheaper set like 700 CCA, 875CA for $50. How much of a noticable difference would there be.

    Let's put it this way..........The bigger the battery the less chance that you'll ever have a reason to wonder why you bought that small battery!!!!!!! TRUST ME, there's nothing worse than finding out on the coldest, most blizzardy night of the year that you should have spent the extra 20 bucks.......
