Mount system, yes. The plugs look the same. Plug it in and see what happens!

Installed my front lower adjustable control arms, greased her up, found the cause of my P0207/03 (deteriorated/hardened wire insulation) so will be discecting the injector wires and re-taping them to see if that fixes my rough idle.

Stockers are 6 3/4" round. Most speaker replacements for these are 6.5" like purple said. There are adapter brackets that you can fit all kinds of different sizes. Some places give you the adapters when you order new speakers.

installed some new brake shoes and snapped my 4 way lug wrench because the previous owner must have used an impact wrench on the passenger side .... *sigh*
