You may want to check that the ratio on the rear diff matches the tranny. Someone might have converted your car from an auto and not changed out the 3.77 rear. Good Luck
As for larger tires. yes, they stress everything. Wheel bearings, CVs, clutches and brakes. You just have to decide for yourself if they are worth it.

As far as shifting to/from HI and LO, the owners manual recommends not shifting between the two at speeds in excess of 30mph (50kph). The proper way to do it, is to put in the clutch and then shift between the two, and release the clutch.
Also, 1986 Turbo Dual range still had the crappy low range (1.2:1) and 3.7 gearing. Keep that in mind if you plan to lift it. You'd probably want to put in the N/A DR with 1.5 low range and 3.9 gearing.
