Battery cable problems.

I am posting this both on here and the electrical forum.
So my problem is that I wanted to get a new battery for my car, and replace the corroded terminal clamps. I cut off the old clamps and bought new ones, but my cars positive terminal has two cables connecting to it. They barely fit and slide out over time of the clamp. And right now they barely reach the terminal. I have attached a link to the previous rig that was on it, and would like to get some ideas on recreating it. I can't find the 90 terminal lugs anywhere. Autozone and Advance didn't have any, and Lowe's has some very small ones.

The car is a 2002 Nissan Frontier.

Sorry, duplicates aren't allowed on here because they can make things confusing. I deleted your other post.

As far as I know.... those ends are not available for purchase separately.
You'll nee to purchase replacement cables that come with those ends.

Those ends should have just been wire brushed clean.
