Calculate the distance and then try using limit distance mate.
That is what I did at first, but it doesn't work the way I'd like because one is free to move in slot when one is unloaded. I really need something that minimizes the distance in a mate, not minimum distance.
I assume that you want the following:
When the left side of the main part is up, then right clevis is tangent to the edge of the top of the right slot and down.
But when the left side of the main part is moved downward, then the right clevis moves upward, until the "spring" free length is met, then stops moving upward while the main part continues on.
And the opposite for the left clevis.
My first thought is a virtual cam that is under each clevis. You could have a point on each end of the main part drive the angle of the cam, which would raise and lower the clevis's.
2nd thought is to do the same thing as the cam, except with sketch points and sketched paths. with the sketch points coincident to the sketch path.
Limit mate like Deepak suggested might be your best bet....Not sure though.
