Brakes and suspension advise for 156 1.9jtd saloon 2005/55


Could anyone advise service wear limits for discs and pads on 156 1.9jtd saloon. Ive no squeaking and no warning from the dash lights etc. but the discs have a bit of a ridge on them. Due to take the wheels off for further investigation/measurement.

Might need discs and pads all round and I certainly need to replace OSF upper suspension arm (wishbone). Anyone know if it is necessary or advisable to replace left and right upper arms at the same time and whether tracking check/adjust necessary.

Any advice on best place to buy parts (not necessarily performance upgrades as std. performance acceptable to me) would also be appreciated. Looking on the infamous Ebay you can buy a complete set of front and rear discs and pads for 100 incl vat and p&p. I fear they could be made from cheese!

I know to a degree you get what you pay for...but prices can be very different for the same product depending on who you contact.

Finally, thank goodness I hear you say, is there a free download maintenance manual available.

Thanks in advance
