You better can define host based ACL permitting each and every host and make use of it..

To accurately answer your question we need to be clear about the binary value of the addresses. This will show us whether there is a wildcard mask that will match them. So the binary values of the last octet are:

156 is 10011100

158 is 10011110

160 is 10100000

162 is 10100010

As Edwin says one way to solve this is to create 4 host specific entries in your access list. There is also a possibility to use wildcard mask if you create 2 permit statements. You could:

permit (which covers 156 and 158) and

permit (which covers 160 and 162) and
