I have never used either of those particular devices, but I would expect that they would work fine.  When purchasing non-Lenovo-branded parts, always confirm a seller's return policy.

Everyone has their own favorite brands for RAM.  I like Corsair Vengeance, but other people like different ones.  As far as SSDs, I find little actual difference in speed within brands.  Some devices do better on some speed tests, but I don't see that difference in real use.  NVMe 4 lane devices are certainly faster than SATA, but I tend to buy whatever is cheapest.  A big part of the decision is for a retail drive or an OEM one.  Retail drives have a manufacturer's warranty and work with manufacturer's utilities.  Firmware updates come from the manufacturer.  Drives sold on eBay or Amazon may be OEM, which are supported by the computer maker.  Often OEM drives are drives bought with a system and pulled so they might be upgraded.  When buying non-Lenovo parts, always confirm a seller's return policy.
