Hey guys I have been noticing that my SS has been slow starting lately. The lights dim out and everything when you turn the key. Then it fires up no problem. It just sort of hesistates. I am guessing the battery needs to be replaced. It is an AC delco battery leading me to believe it is original or "old" and might be on its way out. With the car idling the alternator charges good (according to volt gauge), above 13 volts. So what would you guys suggest as far as a battery goes, brand and or part number would be great. The car has 11.0 compression so its not some crazy setup that you need a heavy duty starter/starting system. Im sure just a good off the shelf battery would do the trick.
