Chrysler-Designed Front Wheel Drive Body Types
Beginning in 1989, body designators became two letters, with most existing designators becoming 'Ax' where 'x' was the original one-letter name. (This page only lists the Ax codes).
Based on the K or extended K platform (EEKs)
Actual K body code, 1981-1989:

Extended K family (EEK)
These are cars built with very similar architectures, but having different wheelbases and suspension tuning. Interiors could be completely different and body styles often were, but there was a clear family resemblance and many components tended to be interchangeable.
Pages devoted to these cars may be found by clicking on the code in most cases.

BD (Plymouth Laser and Eagle Talon) ST, and FJ (Stratus coupe, Sebring coupe, Avenger coupe) were restyled Mitsubishi Eclipses and are not included.
Edward Martelle pointed out:
Omni/Horizon (Omnirizons) were 4-doors only. The 2-door coupes carried Omni 024 and Horizon TC3 names but as you noted were on the shorter wheelbase. They were renamed Charger and Turismo, but basically unchanged. Scamp and Rampage used the coupe front sheetmetal.
Chrysler 300M was the “5 meter” car that was to re-launch Chrysler into Europe; demand was relatively high in the US though the 300M was the smallest of the LH series, yet among the priciest. [Marcus Clenney added that the 300M had short overhangs front and rear to stay under five meters.]
LHS was a longer wheelbase version of LH platform, literally "LH Stretch" (thought it funny that made it as a model name, kind of like the Horizon GLHS.) The second-generation Concorde used the LHS chassis but with different nose and less “jewelry.” From 2002, Concorde was identical to the LHS (which was eliminated shortly after) except for de-contented features, trim and jewelry.
Minivans were Plymouth Voyager and Dodge Caravan; Grand Voyager and Grand Caravan (extended wheelbase models) started 1989 and Chrysler Town & Country (extended) started 1990.
