no- the 05+'s use a revised front knuckle (thicker) thus the front strut mounting ears don't fit

it is possible to upgrade the front knuckles/hub however- which is a much better design (wheel bearings last a lot longer)

what you can do however is swap the internals from the newer struts into your existing housings
