    Yes, you do have to remove from the top, and the pillars have to come off to do that.
    Here they are new from Ford, for $85 for two.

    Not bad, guess I'll stay oem for that price.. Volume knob just broke on headunit to. My last LS had an AF one. Trying to find one for my 05 thats plug and play? Really just want gps again. Maybe stock unit is better. Dont want to go splicing a ton of wires etc.. was hoping to stay around the $200 range.

    I am not one to argue with Joegr since he likely has forgot more about the LS than I will ever know...and often look to him for accurate advice. That said having replaced the rear subs there is no need to remove the pillars. You can simply push in/lift from the front or pull/lift from the back edge of the speaker grills and they will pop out - then you can just remove from the top using a 6mm ratchet. Others have done it this way and as long as you take your time you will not do any damage. The grills are resilient and its just a pressure fit of sorts.

    His 05, non THX, should not have any speaker grills. My 04 does not, but my 06 does. The use of rear speaker grills varied from year to year.
