Default Has anyone used front sway bar 5272535AA? Parts gurus help please

I'm trying to find a 26mm front bar and this part number comes up under the GT convertible with the SDC (touring) or the SDE (sport) suspension

So is this a 26mm bar or a 24mm?

This bar is $25 cheaper than the 5085656AA 26mm bar listed for the SDD (performance), SDF (euro) PT suspension

I just saw this post on the neon site asking and they just pointed to another neon site where someone was unsure, so no answers

Thanks all

When I look in my Parts Catalog for both part numbers, the following comes up:

05272535AA is used on the convertibles - 27
05085656AA is used on the hatchback - 44

This is from the Parts Catalog:

The SRT4 guys have been buying and installing the 5085656AA bar which is 26mm. You can see in rckstein's chart that this bar is used in both hatchback and convertibles. The convertible is the line under the hatch but still under the 5085656AA listing however it doesn't have the SDD sales code for the 'performance' bar.

EDIT: The catalogue is confusing because I believe there are errors in it. I have noticed this discrepancy on a number of parts. It usually gets sorted out in the later catalogues. The Convertible doesn't get the SDD code for the 26mm bar until the 07 catalogue. But it definitely had them in 05. I know because I have pulled 2 of them for 05 GT verts. As well, while this info is new to many of us, including myself, it has been circulating on the srt4 guys forums for years judging by the posting dates.

Edit 2: After going over 05, 06 and 07 catalogues, I definitely understand the confusion. Previously I had said the 5272535AA worked backwards seemed to come out to being a 24mm bar. But after going over the catalogues and sales codes again and comparing those with the bushing and everything, there is definitely some ambiguity there. It could be possible that this bar is 26mm. LOL So in the end, I didn't really help you.

Wondering if anyone can look to see if a dealer has it in stock so it can be measured, not sure if a dealer would even do that, but I have come across some cool parts guys before

was going to order the more expensive bar just to be safe, but I'm cheap so I'm hoping I can get a nice parts guy to measure it for me, I will update the results
