Assuming you have "holes" and the linkage joint locations, I suggest you connect them in the assembly workbenck with "coincident" connections. Then when in the Analysis workbech it would be easiest to assign a userdefined connection property to that assembly restraint.. On that connection property, lock and free up the required DOF (i.e. lock Z-trans, X-rot, Y-rot)
