Battery charges up fine checks good but the amps are low.

Car seems to turn over really slower than normal so digital check the battery and it says its good needs a charge only has 500cca so I charge it check it and same thing 500cca should be 700cca and 875

Is the battery going bad or what?

Sounds like the plates have been comtaminated or the acid is too low.

It sat for a long period of time maybe 8 months when I was waiting to get my heads back. Seemed to steadily get worse since then

Only has 9.4v cranking now

AGM or wet cell. Sounds like a wetcell that oxidized the plates.

Yes. Once you start using a battery it is way better for the battery if you keep using it.
