The transmission in '87 would be the 700R4 - not a heavy duty
transmission from the factory. In '92 the name changed to 4L60. I
don't think there was any difference in the transmission from the
1/2 ton up. From the factory. Aftermarket rebuilds can make it a
strong, sturdy transmission.
I don't know about '87, but in the years prior there was a light
and a heavy 3/4 ton. Look at the VGW to see which it is. The
suspension on the light 3/4 ton is not much different than the 1/2
ton. The heavy 3/4 ton gets the heavier axle, bigger brakes, etc.

Rust shows up in the back corners between the bumper and the
wheels, the bottom of the doors, rocker panels, front wheel fender
aft of the wheel. Factory paint peals off as they had not yet
figured out how to use the EPA mandated paint process. Especially
bad on the roof.
