I have been using a double wishbone multi-body template found here: https://uk.mathworks.com/help/physmod/sm/examples/double-wishbone-suspension.html
I would like to duplicate the existing template, including all parts and PD controlled platforms to re-create a 4 wheeled simulation. The current template measures roll and bounce performance of the chassis, therefore a 4 wheeled example would be able to also measure pitch. I have watched some tutorials but these have not helped.
Many thanks!

Hi Arthur,
You can connect parts together simply by connecting the frame ports on the two separate solids with a line. If you need them to be offset from one another, a Rigid Transform block enables you to create a rigid connection where the frames are offset from each other (translation and rotation).
I would recommend you look at the following examples:
