Either get an adaptor harness (something like then bucks) or cut the OEM connectors and crimp on spade lugs. Watch for speaker polarity.

Show me a picture of your rear speakers and I will try to guide you. You can get them from ebay, WalMart, Car Stereo shop and online car audio suppliers.

They look like this.
You'll need two sizes, a small and a medium for each speaker. color is the wire gauge size, red will work fine. They're $.01 - $.50 each depending where you get them.

All speakers should have the same connectors, with the exception of subs.

I cant see the pic I posted, if you cant see it, just google spade crimp connector like Coby7 said and you'll see what they look like. Get insulated ones.

These were the second option and if you don't plan on going back to GM speakers is the best way to hook up your speakers because it leaves you with less connectors. Less connectors means less chances of a bad connection. Maybe not as clean looking but nobody sees it once it's all back together.
