Replacing front axle to 2005 G500

I wanted to know if some knew or had experience replacing a front axle assembly to a G500. The only part I can find is an axle assembly from a 2006 G55. Does anyone know if it will fit into a 2005 G500? Your help is greatly appreciate. Thanks!

Thanks for your help. The ratios are the same but I never thought to look at the size of the brakes. That's a very good point. I'll let everyone know if all works out well.
Axles did not match

I got all excited that I got a used G55 Front Axle but it turns out that the Raitos are different. The G500 has a ratio of 4.375 and the G55 has a ratio of 4.11. Back to the drawing board...
