I always use KV slides (TT 100), very similar to what you have bought, mine are also ball bearing and I believe that with this type of glide and probably same with yours you would want to build the drawer 1” under sized to the drawer opening. So if you have 20” opening then build your drawer 19”. There should be a 1/16 +/- tolerance but the more accurate your dimensions the better and ensure your drawers are all square, you should have no problems. The glides can be ‘finicky’ if you are not used to using those but I love the ball bearing feel and how they work.
