Hello from Australia-help with caliper upgrade on 1999 156 2.0L

Hi all,
Seems like an interesting website.
I have been reading some threads about using 147 gta calipers on 156's but none about using 156 gta brakes on a 156. I'm pretty sure its a straight forward procedure but have been caught thinking that alot with alfa's.
do i need anything more than the hoses, calipers, pads and rotors?
will it upset the brake bias if I don't touch the rear set?
Thanks
Matt

I would just get some quality discs and use Ferrodo DS 2500 pads on your 156. (you could use Lucas pads on rear as really no need for Ferrodo on rear)
In fact just using DS2500 with standard discs would make a dramatic improvement.

The extra unsprung weight of the GTA setup would just worsen the ride .
