4" will fit right in, anything bigger will require reworking the dash
 (making holes) and rejiggering some kind of mounting. Be aware that
if you do not get a speaker that mounts flush the tweeter horn will
project and interfere with the mounting of the speaker. Some speakers
will require extending the mounting studs. The stock radio only puts
out less than 10 watts per channel so don't go crazy over the speakers
unless you plan to upgrade the radio. You can go a little bigger on
the rear speakers but it won't change anything much except the $$ you
will spend. Rectangular speakers are inherently junky.
 The theory of car stereos is that the front speakers (which are
closest to the listeners) mainly function as tweeters being small and
very directional. The rear speakers mainly give out omni-directional
bass (low frequencies). You are correct that the OEM speakers are way
past their prime. The stock radio will sound many times better with
new speakers. The old ones are stiff, probably cracked, and very old
technology. They were inexpensive to begin with and never meant to
last this long. Check out Crutchfield.com. They have some good
speakers at reasonable prices. They can help you select something that
will fit in easily, sound good, and fit your budget.
