Does that Amazon link still work for you?


You could also try 4xspower.com. Part numbers 558 and 580 in the Accessories/Terminals section.

Thanks! think I'll order those up...
Might get 586 instead of 580, as it looks like 3/4" spacers might not be enough to get the terminals above the top of the battery (looks like about 1" needed)

Okay, let me know how they fit. I am planning to get the same battery when mine gives out.

I ordered the XS Power 558 and 586 thru Crutchfield. See how that goes, might end up getting smaller spacers and/or shorter terminals if this is too tall...

These Terminals come with the correct spacers and everything that’s needed.

With the dimensions and fitment of everything (depending on how you mount/secure the battery) it’s beneficial to have the terminals spaced outward further apart. Which is an added bonus of these ones.

Just wanted to post up an inexpensive terminal option that worked for me.


Xs power tall brass posts previously mentioned, but buy through Crutchfield at a cheaper price.

https://www.crutchfield.com/S-EGpZGW...ass-Posts.html


Plus the XS power 557 i-Bar adapter kit, which is basically some brass spacers.
https://www.crutchfield.com/S-Wj9gKV...apter-Kit.html


I then bought some various lengths of stainless m6 fasteners. I believe the final length was m6x35mm.


As you can see the height is perfect for the terminals. I know there are plenty of folks that have used the supplied brackets, but I was wanting a more solid solution. This does the trick.

Originally I was going to make something but hit the easy button instead. I picked up a used Kinetic Custom Machine bracket. I’m missing the piece that bolts it to the stock bracket but if I can’t locate one I’ll rig something up.

The captive dogbone part in the pic above goes under this.

This is how it sits though.

I used the XS Power 558 I-BAR adapters with the XS Power 580 posts. This setup sits a bit taller than yours with the 557 adapters. It looks like the 557 may have been a slightly better option.

The KMC tray mounts to this bracket:



You have to remove the bracket to secure the KMC tray to it. One of the bolts that attach the bracket to the car ends up being covered by the KMC tray. I ended up bending a 10mm IKEA box wrench I had so that it could fit under the tray and turn the bolt to attach the bracket.

Here are some pics of mine mounted up:
