Opinions Desired for Energy Suspension Rear Swaybar Bushing Sizes

I'm looking at my options

Current Swaybar on car is 0.94" or 23.876mm
Current Poly bushing on car is 24mm => Energy Suspension 9.5160 (or 95160G)
Therefore, gap is 0.124mm oversized

If we go with the 0.91" (or 23.114mm) swaybar to see if that will help handling, we have three options:
1) Run with the stock rubber bushings. Probably 100K mi on them.
2) Use the current 24mm Poly bushing (0.886mm too large)
3) Buy a 23nmm Poly bushing and sand it out a bit (.114mm too small) => Energy Suspension 9.5159 (or 95159G)

I'm guessing the right answer is #3 but i'd like your opinions here.

I just pulled the old swaybar off the car and tried the 24mm bushings on the 23.114mm bar (0.91"). The 0.886mm gap allows for too much lateral movement (rocking) compared to even the worn OEM Cleavite bushing that was on the 0.91" bar to begin with (well used).

Option #3 -- buy a set of Energy Suspension 95159G bushings is the way to go.
