Painful experience Tim; I still get burned occasionally : )
I once used a joint to represent a long lead screw between two faces that were far apart. Got burned on that because of huge moments. The right way to have a simplified connection like that is a Spring element (could also use a Link180 element). A spring has two coordinate systems, one on each end, so there are no moments!
