I need a set up exactly like the diagram I've attached.

You might consider looking over the Hydraulic Cylinder tutorial by Kurtis Harris:

It helped me with a similar problem.

Sorry, that was just different enough for me to still have questions. I tried using a null for a target object before and the hinge would still seperate enough not to work. I need two pivot points on the "fixed bar" and I think a null will be the answer I'm just not sure exactly how at this point.
