    Rubber bumper on a Blur "dog bone"

    The rubber bumper on the linkage "dog bone" for my Blur LT2 is missing. Is this necessary?

    If so where can I get a replacement (on line preferably).

    Also, is there a cheap and easy fix with a household product that I can do at home?

    Is this the rubber bump stop on the lower link you are missing (#7 in the picture)?

    You could replace the lower link from the Santa Cruz online store for about $40 but probably overkill if all you need is the bumper. Been a while since I've had my Blur but I think all it does is keep the lower link from banging into the bottom bracket when the shock is removed for service. I could be wrong but I would hate to think there is any contact there during regular suspension travel.

    You can call email Santa Cruz support and see if they can just send you one or maybe just use one of those adhesive furniture bumpers that you could stick to the BB where there might be contact. Probably won't be as durable though. Like one of these...

    I would call SC. I would not want to run without it to prevent the link from hitting the frame.
    Alcohol may lead nowhere, but it sure is the scenic route!

    Emailed SC this week and had one in my mailbox by Friday. Great service, glad the warranty is now 5 years.
