5x5 Rubenking edge pieces

I use Andy Klise's 5x5 guide algorithms. To exchange two edge pieces I use:

Lw' U² Lw' U² F² Lw' F² Rw U² Rw' U² Lw²

Unfortunately this doesn't work for a Rubenking 5x5 because it messes up the centres. Are there suggestions for an alternative algorithm?

a quick google search gave me this alg to 3-cycle the center pieces on one face: r' d' r U r' d r U r' d' r U2 r' d r
can't check if it works, though.

This is definitely a nice algorithm to solve the the centres. But I need an algorithm to exchange to edge pieces without messing up the centres.
