450 Swingarm on a 500 Foreman

 
Doing the 450 Swingarm on my 06 500 (this is the one I'm having to swap do a different frame after the pivot bolt threads were destroyed)
 
I see some people say to pull the swingarm over using the bolts, some say to cut the swingarm, bend it to the side, then weld it, and I though I saw someone who said to use the right tube off of a 450 Foreman and it would bolt right up.
 
Anyone know if the right tube for a 450 is plug and play?  I can get one of those cheap.

    To answer this question for anyone searching in the future, a 450 right axle tube did allow me to bolt the rear end up to the 450 swingarm without having to bend/cut/weld anything.  There was maybe a 1/8" gap between the plate and the swingarm but when I tightened the bolts down the gap disappeared.
     
    Got my stretch put on this 500 to make room for my 28x12x12 Mudbugs on the rear.
