If you don't want to change all copies of the component first right click it and choose make unique.
double click the component to edit it.
using the select tool (press the spacebar to get it the easy way) drag a box over all the detail making up one end of the rail. Drag left to right and you will only select lines totally within your dragged box.
use the move tool to move all that end detail towards or away from the other end to change the length.
when using move get things going in the direction you want (message pop up to say 'on red axis' for example) then hold the shift key down. That will lock movement to that axis direction so you can concentrate on where you want it rather than keeping on line. You can also click something else on the drawing the height you want and your move will stay constrained to the axis. Easier to do than explain!

Will have to try components. They seemed to have the mixed blessing that duplicated components get modified in unison.
Would you like to email me your SU drawing and I'll have a quick look at it for you?
