Differences are negligible.

Advertised Hp/Torque for the 86 was 235/330,and 245/350 for the 87.

As pointed out above, grilles are different.
Door pulls on the 86 are black, whereas they are grey on the 87.

I think there are probably a few more cosmetic differences, but I'm too lazy to get up and venture out in the garage.

The 86's are rarer, with approximately 5500 made to the 87's 20,000 or so.

Oops, just remembered, the electronic climate control was last offered in 86. (For a reason - it had a lot of problems!)

Never heard that about the ride....I have one of each...unfortunately neither one has the stock springs so I could not argue that point. Engines are the same, I like the chrome on the grill....

I would say the one that you can find the best deal on would be the one to buy...don't over look the Ts as they don't normally draw cops as bad unless they are black...
