I used battery boys last time. My batteries are showing signs of weakening and their only 5 years old. I will use battery boys again and it looks like that will be within two more years.

I'm a DIY type of guy. 2 electric carts since moving to TV 6 years ago. Each required repl batteries.

Both times, after much research decided to go with Battery Boys. Both times - the install was very professional. Our Yamaha a few years ago needed rust-cleaning and painting in the battery bay - BB guy took a long time to clean and restore before batt install - beautiful. Our Tomberlin just required batt removal and new install.

They perform testing afterwards and good instruction, warranty.

Would never try DIY for batt repl myself. Too risky, too difficult in order to possibly save a few bucks.

Need six 8 volt batteries for a club car. Is it worth it to change to eight 6 volt?

Much appreciated.
I believe that if you want to change to eight 6-volt batteries that some modifications involving welding to the battery compartment are necessary.
