i don't really have a suggestion as to what pistons to use, but the ring lands more than likely broke because the wasn't enough end gap on the rings. They have to be larger on SOME of the keith black pistons because the top ring land is so close to the top of the piston and it gets alot hotter, causing them to break. I've even heard of the whole top of the piston popping off without enough end gap on some of the KB pistons.

anyway, just a thought
