Default Exhaust gasket search

I am extremely close to firing up my beast again after what, almost 3 years. I am however having a problem finding an exhaust gasket. The passenger side is the standard flange style gasket. I have what I believe are Ford Racing shortie headers(DEF shorties). The driver side mount to the X-pipe seems to be a ball and socket flange. Is a doughnut gasket of some sort suppose to be in there? I cannot find one at any of the parts stores locally. The Ford dealer got me two flange gaskets when I ordered them.

Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks.

you may want to throw on some hi-temp gasket maker on there just to be safe. i had a very small leak after my LT install from one of those ball and socket flanges so i just put the gasket stuff on all of em. haven't had any leaks of any kind since
