CANSUCC bike stems any good?

Do they have a reputation?
But seriously...
Why do sellers on Amazon not list the clamp height? You know, the height of the stem part that clamps around the steering tube? My available steering tube is short (35mm). Half of the stems are too high for it.

Stack/steerer height is listed for most of the stems I've looked at.

What website are you using?

Try Jensen USA.

Yes, of course I should have mentioned Amazon (edited that in there).
But if you drop (CANSUCC) into any search engine, Amazon is what comes up first.
And Yes, I know, Amazon sellers are not the most technically inclined.
But seriously, they should know that, especially since they specify all the other dimensions.

Guess you’ll have to take a chance or pay more.

I would just order it then....

Worst-case-scenario you have to return it.

I hear they can suck.

Sorry. Couldn't resist.
The names that show up on amazon can be hilarious.

There are so many reputable options, why go with a known unknown?

Since half are not too high buy one of those. Or you may need a longer steerer = new fork.
Can you get a thinner headset? Look at the thickness of the cap under the first spacer. Do you have any spacers under the stem?

Considering how few list stack height, I would be surprised if your favorite online store does.
Origin8 stems are for sale on Amazon and eBay, but there is no stack height information for them, as I was just told by a brick-and-mortar store eBay seller.

Paying more makes no difference. I just searched Jensen USA for "stems". The first result is over $100 WITH NO STACK HEIGHT LISTED. So far, I've seen one listing for a stem that included the stack height.

The problem is... China either couldn't care less or their people are so isolated, they have no clue about names. Seems China wants to destroy branding. Their QIDI 3d printers are sold under another name "Junco".
