HARDRACE end links

Hi!

First post but long time lurker here! I have recently purchased a 2017 Mazda 3 Sedan fully loaded in Machine Grey Metallic. I have ordered Eibach Springs and a Progress RSB, I understand I should also look at upgrading the rear end links. I was looking at the Hardrace website but they show two options for the end links with different adjustable lengths, which ones would I order?

Thanks much!
