AUTOMATIC MATE UPDATES?

I am working with a frame weldment right now and have my assy complete. The size of the square tube changed from 2" x 2" x 11ga (.120) to 2" x 2" x 7 ga... now all of my mates need to be redefined along with all of the planes I created. I don't want anything else to change. Most of the mates are distance from an edge or midpoint; nothing that would be effected by the thickness of the tube.

 

So my question is, is there a button or some command the makes SW take a guess as to where things should be mated based on previous mate values? I don't want to have to go through my 30 or so mates and redefine relationships. Also this assy is actually a subassy of a larger assembly which has configurations and closer to a hundred mates that are pretty delicate, so I am assuming that those will be messed up even if I clear it up at the subassy level (haven't looked yet... too afraid)
