I've replaced several of these gasets and they were made that way.
It wouldn't hurt to call a different autoparts store and ask them if theirs are made that way.

Not complicated but too long to write. You can get a manual from chiltons, haynes etc that has good instructions for this. Likely if you are reasonably good with tools, you could figure it out. Most important part of the job is getting a differential with the exact same gear ratio to match the rear. (usually there is a metal tag on one of the cover bolts or count the number of teeth on both the ring gear & pinion gear.) Make sure axle tubes are the same length and don't forget to bleed brakes when you are finished. Need any help along the way, just ask...I'm here!

On the differential you should find two square plugs. One is lower than the other to check the level of the oil. If you open it and it comes out or you stick your finger in and feel the fluid you are ok. The second is higher up and is removed to replace fluid. You will have to use a funnel with a narrow bottom. When filling, open the lower hole and fill until it comes out of that hole.
