But you do realize that for around the price of a new Leaf battery you are more than doubling the capacity! (39.5 + 24 = 63.5kWh!)
Plus, even if you're gutting your old Leaf battery and making a new one you not only could sell the used Leaf cells on eBay for up to some $4,000 (so you end up paying less than $3,000 for a 40kWh battery) you can also add whatever TMS system you so desire, in some cases improving both performance and longevity.
