The 232 was first available in trucks in 1954. The 1954 truck data book shows the 3R38 with the 232 to weigh 60 pounds MORE than the 3R17 with the 246 Commander 6. The trucks appear to be otherwise identically equipped. Obviously, some of this increased weight is due to differences in the weight of the bell housing, longer drive shaft, etc. All that said, I agree that the weights are close enough that the old front springs will be fine.
