When you increase the OD of the pushrod it significantly increase the strength over just increasing the wall of your existing pushrod.
Can't answer your exact question, but the 3/8 would be stronger. If it will fit use it. The increased weight has no effect on your needed spring pressure and is only a plus for a happy engine.
