Default Packaging advice for RMA

I have to RMA a Seagate 1TB drive. I have obtained an RMA number, and the following was indicated in the RMA email:

"- Enclose each drive in an ESD (electrostatic discharge) bag or in an anti-static plastic shell (SeaShell).
- Secure each unit in 2 inch-thick foam rubber in a corrugated box. Do not use peanuts, bubble wrap or newspaper.

All I have for packaging is the "Seashell" and the foam peanuts. You think I should use this anyways, or will they reject my RMA? How picky are these companies with this?

If you think I am taking too much of a risk here any suggestions where I can get some thick foam rubber? Tried a few places already but none available where I have looked.

Thanks for any advice or experience you guys may have had with this.
