It doesn't matter John. If you want to replace the batteries like for like it won't do any harm unless you want to keep the vehicle to absolutely original spec. 70 ah is better anyway but rather than ah go for a battery with a high CCA. The Odyssey battery on my Land Rover has a CCA rating of 850, more than adequate for the high torque starter motor fitted.
