EnerSys has expanded its ODYSSEY Performance Series battery product line to include a Group 34 battery and Group 78 battery, designed specifically for consumer passenger and commercial vans, custom and classic cars and SUVs. The ODYSSEY Performance Series 34-790 battery and the ODYSSEY Performance Series 78-790 battery both feature 792 cold cranking amps (CCA) and 114 reserve capacity (RC) minutes. They also feature deep cycle capability up to 400 cycles at 80 percent depth of discharge, the company says.

While ODYSSEY Performance Series batteries do not have as many CCA and RC minutes as ODYSSEY Extreme Series batteries, they feature the same rugged construction and offer equivalent deep cycling capabilities, long service life and high reliability, according to Enersys. They also deliver more deep cycle capabilities for parasitic loads.

“We are pleased to introduce the ODYSSEY Performance Series 34-790 and 78-790 batteries to offer a wider selection of ODYSSEY Performance Series batteries to customers,” said Dave McMullen, director of commercial marketing for specialty and UPS markets at EnerSys. “The ODYSSEY Performance Series 34-790 and 78-790 batteries are an ideal choice for consumers as they combine long service life, high reliability and deep cycle capabilities so that vehicles can run stronger and for a longer service life than conventional batteries.”

ODYSSEY Performance Series batteries offer a three- to 10-year service life and two-year storage life at 77 degrees Fahrenheit (25 degrees Celsius). They are vibration-resistant, classified as “non-spillable” by the U.S. Department of Transportation and include a four-year full replacement warranty. The ODYSSEY Performance Series 34-790 and ODYSSEY Performance Series 78-790 battery correspond to Battery Council International (BCI) Group 34 and Group 78.

In addition to these new battery models, the ODYSSEY Performance Series Group 65 battery (65-760) will launch in January 2014.

Ball Joints – How To Avoid Memory Steer

Follow all instructions to avoid issues caused by incorrect installation. This video is sponsored by Auto Value and Bumper to Bumper.

If your shop works on trucks like the Ford F 250 or Dodge Ram 2500, you know that these have a solid front axle. During their lifetime, chances are the ball joints will need to be replaced.

Trucks like these have ball joints because they're four wheel drive and the axle goes between where the kingpin used to be. When you're installing the two ball joints it's critical that they're installed on-axis. If they're installed off axis – in other words, one ball joint doesn't line up with the other – you could have issues with memory steer. When memory steer happens, the driver will notice that, as they're going around a corner and releasing the steering wheel, it may not return.
