Default 35 shock arm rubbers

A lot of information about the 35 shocks on the barn and I think I might know the answer, but are there any options to replacing the rubbers in the ball and socket of these shock arms ?. Could you fill the socket with anything ?. I take it you cannot find replacements ?

I have bought replacement rubber balls for those dogbone shock links from Drake and Carpenter. I am sure other parts suppliers also carry them.

The originals have the two rivets and you do have to grind off the heads to disassemble and install new rubber balls. Either bolts or Roy Nacewicz sells special two piece look alike rivets to replace and reassemble.
