Can I replace my trackpad with one from a different model/size

I'm curious if you know if it is possible to replace a 13" MBP trackpad with one off a 15"? My 13"'s trackpad is cracked and my 15" logic board is toast. There seems to be different models available but the dimensions are exactly the same.

If we look at the P/N's they are very different:

MacBook Pro 13" Early '11 Trackpad 922-9773 - Here's the IFIXIT part: 13" Trackpad

MacBook Pro 15" Early '15 Trackpad 922-9749 - Here's the IFIXIT part: 15" Trackpad

As you can see the trackpads are the same within the different series from '09 ~ '12 models so you could use a 13" junker instead.

I was just hoping that since they are the same dimensions they would work
