I just used Hastings in my rebuild. I ordered them off of eBay a long while back, but come to find out that my machine shop is a Hasting's "distributor." Check your local machine shop to see if they can order you a set.
ALSO NOTE: when we tried to install my set, we realized they packaged the wrong sized oil scraper expander rings in the set (the zig zag ones). I contacted Hastings and I believe they did an audit of the 4 remaining sets they had in their USA warehouse and found they had a bad pick of their inventory that day when they made all of the sets. They sent me the correct ones free of charge and I think they said they fixed the other 4 sets as well. If the expander rings don't feel like they fit on the piston, try fitting them in the bore separately and see if they'll fit off the piston without bumping into each end sitting square in the bore. That's how we found out
