    The offset is to add caster after a lift.

    This.
    The offset is to add more caster after the front end is lifted. However that doesn't guarantee that it'll be align-able. Only way to know is to install them set your ride height and have it aligned.
    Personally I wouldn't trust knockoff Chinese eBay suspension components for any hard offroading, depending on the circumstances a failed UCA could lead to hundreds or thousands of dollars of damage to adjacent components.

    What does their info state? No returns or guaranteed to fit? Can start a dispute thru the bay.

    If they are hitting the spring on your CO, probably.
