Man up and get the 159!
I am the same stat's as you just 4 inches taller, which makes no difference to length anyways. I rode the 156 for a couple of weeks last year and it was too short for anything other than rails and small stuff. To hit jumps and ride pow I would go with the 159. Actually thats a lie I wouldn't get the banana anyway. But thats just me.
