how to connect an object between two curved objects and adjust the length depending on distance

finding it hard to describe but in essence i am looking to connect a straight rope (drawn as solid and straight extruded cylinder) between two lines in an assembly and change the length of the rope depending on the distance between the two lines. I would rather not redraw the object every time.

 

each top and bottom curve is also an object (pipe) in itself.

 

I attached a quick sketch and the photo below. This is for the hangers of a suspension bridge to make this problem more understandable. 

Also some suggestion how to best mate in essence two ropes together would be appreciated. 

 

Thank you very much for your help.
