ML370 g2 To ML370 g3 Migration

I have a ML370 with 4 disks(18.5 ultra 3 scsi)raid 5 With SQL / CRM / Peoplesoft applications installed.
It also has 1 36gb (Ultra 120) volume with SQL dbs stored.

The intention is to transfer the OS / Applications / data. Across to the new server on 6 brand new 36.5 gb disks (4=raid 5 and each of the other two will be seperate volumes) without the need for reinstallation due to the complexity of the Application configuration and downtime that would be requried.

A number of ideas were looked at, of which one is:
Cross over the 4xraid 5 disks to the new server and break the array adding a new disk from the new batch allow it to rebuild and then carry on with the remainder one at a time.
Would this work?
