156 Brakes issue
I have just replaced the front and rear discs, the front being Black Diamond drilled items. I have used new, standard pads all round, stripped and cleaned/re-greased the calipers. They are like new.
Having bled the entire system I still feel that a worrying amount of pedal pressure is required to stop the car.
I am aware that new discs and pads require a bedding in period but they should not be as bad as this.
I have pushed the brake pedal to do an emergency stop but could not even lock the wheels.
Is this a common fault on the 156 or have I done something wrong.
I can't help thinking that the master cylinder bore i not matched to the caliper bore, thereby requiring high pedal pressure. Or maybe the servo is under performing.
