Hi All, I am in the process of converting my Sebring from leaf to a triangulated 4 link system with coil over shocks. I believe this is what was done on the Sebring MX's. Does anyone have a manual or possibly some photos of the undercarriage I could use for reference?

The MX used Fox body Mustang rear suspension.  I believe it was installed just as it came out of the Mustang.  I'm not sure if there was any major difference in the rear portion of the frame.

If you can get a look under a Fox body Mustang, you should be able to get the dimensions you need. The coilovers would be a modification from the stock Mustang, since they were regular coil springs with separate shocks. I know that DrJ, on this forum, did the coilover swap.

One issue you may run into it fender width.  It has more or less been determined that the MX had wider rear fenders than the 5000 version.  I would imagine that the fender were widened to fit the wider track of the Fox body suspension.
