Rubber Shock Bump Stop Breaking Down - Need Coating

The rubber bump stop on this shock is crumbing. I am looking for a rubber coating I can brush on to stop this. Any thoughts? Thanks!

If it's crumbling.... a coating is not going to help it.
Is it not a replaceable part ?

Not a replaceable part. The brown is stable. I need to coat it and I think I will be good...

In that picture it actually looks like a sponge for cleaning the piston as opposed to a bumper/stop.


I'm thinking a rubberized auto undercoating...... liquid/brush on - not in spray can.

Maybe that TV advertised stuff.... Flex Seal. That comes in a small can.
Another... Miracle Cover SD - Products
and... Plastidip/our-products/plasti-dip/

Liquid electrical tape? I think its a piston wipe as well. If it's got any give to it (like a dried sponge), it's not a bump stop.

You are probably right. It not a bump stop. It does seem spongy..
