that sounds more likely to be a towing spring assister????

is it wedged into the coils of the spring ?

no its a large rubber dome bolted to the chassis at the top of the rear spring, i think its to stop bottom out the suspension, just been to my auto factors and they say they cant get any.

There are two possible 'rubber' bits at the top of the shock. The crude pic shows the bump stop in blue on the shaft of the shock below the upper spring pan and inside the coils. This is a manufacturer job to replace when rebuilding the shock.

Some shocks have a stud mounting above the upper spring pan to mount to the car and this has a rubber bush (or two), in red, to cushion the mounting point. These are not within the spring. These can be replaced by unbolting the top end of the shock from the car.

Source them from shock manufacturers or the specialist parts people at shows.
