Max them out and you'll be replacing ball joints shortly after. Well hopefully you get an alignment after the crank, but after that the BJ's will go on you. Plan to replace them with MOOG's.

the drivers side will the passengers side wont. when maxed and sitting level the drivers side will be all the way in and the passenger side will still not be all the way in.
