I think in your case, DriveWorks will help.
You will have to create them all or at least mate all the different parts, after that you could add a design table to manage when they items are suppressed or unsuppressed, you only need to create a few configurations at least 2 one with all the different parts suppressed and all unsuppressed and the rest you can do with the design table, as well as correct the initial configurations, I have done it for a lot of electrical controllers a company I used to work for did, as I found it easier to copy and edit excel tables much easier
I would either use configuration publisher OR DriveWorks for this case.
I agree with both Tateos and Deepak, (love the hat btw, Deepak ), configurations in Solidworks seem to randomly lose mates, directions and even appearances!

Ah! I'm glad it is not just me imagining that.
I would like to be able to have "Exploded Views" as an independent configuration. That way I could show spring/split washers open when exploded and closed when collapsed.
