No, that's too late. You can only change the src/dst addresses in the nat 
table, which comes before the routing decision. If you write a module for 
-t mangle which then pokes on the addr, you're probably too late, i.e. no 

You might however, force a rerouting decision when using the -j ROUTE target.
