Same Drawing Different Models

My company is in the process of getting some of our products tested at a 3rd party company.  We are going to have the same part model used on different drawings with different names.   Since I already have one drawing completed for part name "A".  Can I save out the new part names and replace the references inside the assemblies as I normally would, THEN take the drawings from name "A" save a copy of them and reference the new "part names".  I tried right clicking on the drawing view in the drawing tree and "replacing models" this did work however it made all of my dimensions "yellow".  This is not what I want since I would still have to go back and replace all of the dimensions manually.  So my question is, is there a way to do this and have it auto populate the dimensions?  I hope this makes sense.  Thanks in advance for the help.
