I took a battery out of the other Suburban last night. Only the negative cable was hooked up. When I got it into the light, I noticed that the side walls (the shorter ones) were noticeably bowed outward. I've never seen that before and am assuming that the electrolyte froze & expanded.

Guessing I should not mess with it and just take it to the recycler?
