Arrow Interstate battery fitment problem in '95 E420

I bought a new Interstate battery to replace my OE battery by accident...but seein' that my OE battery is now almost 4 years old, I guess it is probably nearing the end of its life, so I am gonna make the swap anyway...I bought an Interstate Mega-Tron Plus MTP-93 battery for my '95 E420...when I tried to install the battery, I found that the battery is actually slightly lower than the OE battery...this wouldn't be a problem, but I also found that the positive terminal only has enough slack to reach the positive terminal of the OE battery...and not enough slack to reach the battery if it is sitting lower...anybody have any good suggestions as to how to raise the height of the battery by around half an inch? Do they sell some special height adapter for this battery to fit in V8 W124's? Thank you...
