they have 5x7 speakers in the front and rear.. these are a good replacement set -

they come with a baffle plate 'adapter' so it fits flush and seals in the original 5x7 hole

the alpine type R, 5 1/4" comes with the 5x7 plate with it, it houses both the speaker and the tweeter. i have these in my AU ute and i highly recommend it...

just have to watch the rubber dont hit the grill if you use a thick spacer, i made some 6mm adaptor plates up and have a template somewhere for them,

Those Autobarn spacers should work fine. However, I made 6" speaker spacers for both my old BA and my current AU out of MDF which was only around 4mm thick. I simply traced the factory 5x7" speaker (face down) onto the MDF and cut it out using a jigsaw (i also drilled out the screw holes to line up with the door). Then i drew and cut the hole out to fit my 6" speaker. The MDF spacer screws into the original holes using the original speaker screws, and the 6" speaker is mounted on the MDF. Simple, easy and effective... oh and best of all cheap!
