Question Advice on suspension

Good day everyone.
I've read the threads on shocks, springs, etc. Unfortunately i do not have the funds to invest in such name brands.
I've found this on fleabay and or amazon.
https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?h...2F392350375160

The price is something i can afford now. My current shocks have 147k. Its used to commute back and forth from work. I'm worried about the quality. The OEM shocks are $130 a piece with no springs or hardware. This entire package is $219 for all 4.
My Subby sense things they will not last but i need to do something about the current ones. Has anyone used them? Are they worth the money?

A second question: when i let go of gas, i feel like the entire car slows down instantly. It almost feels like its starving for air. Its not a lean deceleration. It's hard to describe. I'm guessing the throtle body must be very dirty? The air filter is fairly new. Since its fly by wire system, i can't adjust the "air plate" like you would on a cable.
Not sure if inmentioned: 07 2.5i no fancy setup other than new brakes, calipers and rotors and a new audio system.

Thank you for any suggestions you might have.
