How To Have dummies follow cube bounding box in dummies Z orientation.

I have four dummies placed on every corner of a square(cube). The cube is rotating and as it rotates i want the dummies to follow the cube bounding box surface position only in the dummies(z) direction or (up and down) while the dummy stays in place in its other (x,y) orientations. I've tried to add a position constraint but the dummy also moves in x and y orientations. Hope someone can help ,, thanks.

Let me reiterate if that was confusing , I just want the dummy to go up and down(only) following the surface(cube) changes in when the cube rotates.

wire parameters?
Right-click on dummy, then choose "wire parameters", and link dummy Z to box rotation.

Hope that helps.
