Exclamation RTV or Gasket for my rear Diff that is leaking

Is started this topic on another Thread but I wanted to make sure I am doing the right thing here.

So for whatever reason my rear Diff is leaking, not an unusually problem but never the less it is a problem I need to address.

Instead of using the RTV, I found this Gasket for my car. Let me know your thoughts.

Here is the gasket link:

I've done a ton of diff rebuilds and never use a gasket. I always use black RTV and never have a problem. Most come from the factory with RTV now.

It's all a matter of opinion on which color or brand to use. Most any high temp RTV or sealer will work.
