I have a 95 gt mustang and the guy who installed my battery used the side post to hook up my power wire, is this recomended? or should it go directly on the top post like it was before? will there be any current problems?

the side and top posts are connected. doesn't make any difference which posts you use.

Actually with the manual that comes with the optima, it recomends using the top post if possible, and only using the side posts for stock wiring/charging. So if possible, you should avoid running your main wires from the side post, if it's possible you can use the top. (Better connection point on the top, than the side, I believe is the reason for this.)
