Unhappy What Size Front Sway Bar Bushings Do I Have?

Hi guys, need some help. I have a 2008 Cobalt LT 2 door coupe with a 2.2 automatic no ABS no Traction control California emissions car. I went to Advance's Website and they show 4 different size bushings as an exact fit for my car. I went into the local store today and inquired about the same part and came up with the same problem. When I asked the seasoned counterman (30 yrs. ) how do I tell what size my bar is, he said get a micrometer and measure it. Other than that, nobody seems to know. Any help?
Thanks, Pat:

Not sure about the FE3, but the FE5 from 2005-2007 is 24mm, and from 2008-2010 it's 23mm. You've got the FE1 anti sway bar.

Never said he had FE3.

Where did you get that information? CED is telling me the TC anti sway bar is 23mm in diameter, and the SC is 24mm.

That says rear, the TC front is 23mm. It's a sticky on CSS although it's old it still has relevant information, the thread was made about the time the LNF SS' were being released so wasn't fully updated with their information.
