Re: Bulging Battery !
Hard to say but at least disconnect the negative terminal. I have never heard of the regulator going bad on an LT (there is always a first time).
You did not mention a year model so I will say that if it a pre-2002 there is a good chance you have welded the starter relay contacts and when you install the replacement battery be ready for the starer to run. May be able to free it up by hitting the starter button while it is running as this wiggles the welded bits and may break them free.
