What do you mean it has a stick instead of the vacuum lines for the 4wd?

Some are vacuum so the lines come off then you got no 4wd. this one has the stick.

so your saying its a non-disco d30? or a disco d30 with some sort it stick that enguages the front axle? all of them have a "stick" to switch to 4wd. your wording there is a little confusing.

disco d30-shift lever switches t-case into 4wd, vacuum enguages the pass side axle

non-disco d30-shift lever switches t-case to 4wd, axle is always enguaged

With the correct backspacing on your wheels and maybe some minor trimming, then ya they'll fit.
