156 Brakes

Does anyone know if the front Brembo 4 pot calipers off a Fiat Coupe will fit a 156 v6

Re: 156 Brakes

worst case scenario you need to make an adapter plate for them.

finding alloys that will fit over them is the difficult part.

Re: 156 Brakes

They are the same as the early GTA caliper (and the GTV V6).
To fit them to a normal 156/147/GT, you need to use the front uprights from a GTA.
You will also need a new set of wheel bearings.

Re: 156 Brakes

The car will stop very well with them fitted, however most people with them on Fiat Coupes' find that brake squeel is very common. And there is not much you can do about it apparently.

Mine is quite embarrasing whilst driving in town, even though I have new genuine pads, copper grease and chamfered edges on the pads.
