Have been using mtec c hooks quite happily for the past couple of years though you may want to get yourself some better pads at the same time.

I'm using Brembo MAX HC slotted discs on mine paired with NQSBBK's and been happy with them so far. Plus it's UV coated which doesn't seem to form rust much compared to stock discs in my experience.
