4.2 oil pan gasket

I need to replace the oilpan gasket on my 4.2 and I can find is that silicone stuff. Do they make a rubber, cork or silicone hard gasket of some sort for this engine? I know the silicone stuff will work but the quality of work maybe a little bit more subjective than a hard gasket.

If it matters the engine is in a 2005 Freestar. Thanks a bunch!

I am rebuilding mine in a 98 f150 and the kit did not come with an oil pan gasket. All it had originally was silicone.

The silicone that came with the kit was barely enough; i used an extra tube I had laying around.
