Using a reference object for mating an assembly

I'm working on adapting an excisting petrol powered vehicle to one which runs on renewable energy. For this I have received a STEP file of the vehicle's assembly. I'm trying to recreate the rear suspension with correct mating, but in this base vehicle, the suspension is attached to the gearbox, which will be scrapped.


So, I'd like to use the gearbox as a reference for mating the suspension parts to recreate the suspension correctly, but not have the gearbox in the final assembly. Surpressing the gearbox also surpresses all mates to the gearbox, so this doesn't work. Which functions can I use for achieving this objective?


Thank you,
