Exhaust Gasket Question?

I have just purchased the Magnaflow direct fit cats for my 95 4.6 bird. When I removed my stock cat setup, I never noticed a gasket in between the headers and exhaust pipes. I don't have a clue when it comes to exhaust, but my friends were telling me that I need a gasket to install my new cats. Is this true? I'm pretty sure there wasn't any on my car when I took them off and there was no leaks. If I do need them what exactly am I looking for? I tried to find them at part stores but came up with a bunch of different things.

-Thanks

There is no gasket between the exhaust manifolds and down pipes.

ditto.
It's a bell and socket flange, no gasket needed.
