156 2.0 TS Brake Refresh help
My brakes are definately reaching the end of their usable life
They stop the car OK but having had the rears wheels off this weekend the rears defintaly dont have much life left in them and I suspect the fronts are the same.
There seems to be 2 sizes of rear disks for the 156 251mm and 276 mm - it would appear that as my car is pre-facelift ( manufactured May 2001 ) I need the smaller rear disks can anyone confirm this ?
Does anyone know who makes the OEM braking equipment for Alfa Romeo ?
I'm not after an upgrade just refitting with decent quality stuff - shortlist at the moment is either Mintex, Pagid or Brembo unless anyone has any other recommendations ?
I know you can get cheap unbranded stuff but unless anyone has any positive real-world experience of these I'd rather stick to a decent brand
Finally does anyone have a recommendation for an inexpensive caliper rewind tool as I undertsand the rear pistons have to be rotated as they are pushed back in to fit the new pads - which way as you can but clockwise and anticlockwise tools ???
