Need some help on a asymmetrical suspension animation I am working on and can't get it to animate.

I been working on a race car suspension for an upcoming youtube video as a visual aid. I worked several hours on what I thought would be simple animation, I was so wrong. I watched every video I could find but nothing really similar to what I am working on. I tried every mate to see if i could fix my issue, no luck. Maybe I am over looking something idk. It is a  4-link suspension, left mounts are fixed points like on cars

    David - Welcome to the forums.
    The people here are awesome - if you post a public link to your document (and a brief description of the type of animation you are looking to create), I am sure that you will get the help you are looking for :)

    What issue are you having? That does seem like a simple linkage.

    Are you able to grab the gray piece and move it manually in the direction you want?
    Have you checked your mates to make sure something isn't restricting you?

    A link to your document would answer a lot of the easy questions.
