DIY foundation crack sealing

Our foundation has 2 structural cracks that were sealed and stabilized with epoxy over 16 years ago by the builder. No movement or leakage since. However, they only filled the cracks up to ground level. Do you think it is ok to fill the remaining above grade portion with a DIY Dricore product or something similar? Asking now as we are in the process of finishing the basement.

Are these DIY kits effective? Or should we just get a pro to inject them?

Also, will filling the top portion of the crack with polyurethane or epoxy possibly compromise the existing injection?

You need to seal the cracks on the outside.
