Thick drive flange for metric hubs?

OK still trying to wrap my head around the effing minutia of Land Rover bodge build ups. This hub thing has my head in a swim. I think I now have the correct hubs that will work. They aren't all the same of course, the fronts are still the ABS ones, FTC942. I think I'm safe with those as long as I have the single line calipers and solid discs.
The rears are ones I got from Briggs, and they are non ABS RRC. They have the raised ribs on the back of the stud flange and appear to be metric hubs as well. Part number unknown but best guess is FTC1457.
I have the long 24 spline 110 half shafts front and rear. Fronts are Rover type, and the rears are Salisbury type. I guess I need either the KAM hub flange spacers so I can use the thin type drive flanges and the long axle shafts or I buy thick aftermarket drive flanges like the Terrafirma TF5806 ones, or I get all new axle shafts.
I am worried that the thick Terrafirma drive flanges are made for the early imperial axles and won't fit the later metric axles.
See? It's not all that simple is it?

24 spline is 24 spline. There is no difference. Metric etc just refers to the threads.

The concern is the drive flange bolt pattern. The hubs I have which seem to be most common have a larger bolt circle and center bore than the thick Defender 110 drive flanges i got with these axles.

Jeff your hubs are not the issue. It's the old defender drive flanges that do not fit any of the hubs I have, except for the one hub that was on the front axle.
