    Yes they do help, Riva or R&D both good.

    Please Invest in a mini blow torch, to heat the bolts up.

    Otherwise, you risk snapping the bolts. (i snapped 2 of them, befor i went and invested in one.)

    Its a very easy mod to do.

    You dont need to buy a kit, you can use some very good qaulity marine silicone instead. (us$10 from lowes).

    how long do u recommend heating the bolts to ensure they dont snap, if I were to get the kit, does it come with an adhesive or do I need to purchase the silicone seperate

    not too long, i heated mine up, just till a peice on the top of the bolt started to glow. (prob 30-60seconds).

    Im kinda paranoid, with snapping bollts now.

    You will need to purchase silicone, and youll have to silicone the rubber bits into place.

    Or you can just use silicone and leave the rubber bits out.
