Create a variable dimension

Is there any way to set a dimension for a pre-drawn part when you insert it into an assembly? For instance I added a custom spring to my toolbox. The spring is 2" long, however, I want to model it so that it is compressed to 1.5". Is there any way to set up the spring file to have Solidworks ask me what I want the length to be when I insert the spring?
