To determine the size filter you need you need to know which model you have. When you find the model number, which should be attached to the furnace, you can go here to find the right size filter: http://www.fivestardrains.com/documents/americanStandard-indoorHVAC/specsADC1.pdf.
The location of the filter(s) also depends on whether it is an up flow or down flow furnace. You can find the location for either on pages 4 and 5 here: http://franklinheatandair.com/pdfeqmanuals/American%20Standard/freedom90gasfurnace.pdf. Note -- the sizes for the filters listed in this manual may not be accurate. You need to check by model number.
Once you know where they are, remove the access panel and they should slide out. I believe you have to be sure which direction the filter should face so before removing the old one note which side is up.
To keep legal happy, let me just say that I am not an HVAC contractor, and you should never even look at your furnace without having a qualified, liability accepting HVAC contractor present.
