Post Speaker Size Help

I'm planning on replacing my front door speakers (I already did the rear 6x9'* last month) but I can't figure out what size to get. I would go look myself, but I'm feeling lazy and I don't want to take everything apart while it'* raining.

My car is a 98 SE, and has two grilles on each door, seen here:


What speaker size(*) do I need to look at?

I think Crutchfields site has speaker sizes listed for vehicles.

I have heard that Crutchfield isn't very reliable when it comes to sizing speakers. They tell me I have 5-1/4" speakers. Onlinecarstereo.com says they are 4".

That'* why I'm confused about it.

Crutchfield says I don't have rear door speakers, when I do. So um...yeah.

Confirmed. Those are indeed 5" diameter speakers.

Not sure about the tweeters, but scuttlebutt suggests 2".
