I recall reading of a D Co with one of the ETO based Divs, so presume they kept their fourth Co. The allocation of 37-mm guns to Engr and other elements of the Div may have continued if units decided to keep the kit, but outside of the Armd Inf and Div HQ I don't think they were all upgraded to 57-mm.
Hope that's some help anyway. If you're after real detail you can either tracj down copies of the T/Os from the USAMHI, or get the books by JJ Hays on the US Armd Divs, which will give you the same detail.
