Basement Leak Brick House

I live in a brick bungaloo with a poured foundation, full basement. The basement has one floor drain that leads to the sump pit. I have overhead sewer, lines about 3 foot above the floor level. My asphalt drive way is butted against the south side of the house, and it really isn't pitched away from the house. I have three glass block in the basement on the driveway side. under the middle window i have a very noticable crack in the foundation wall.

What is the best product to fill that crack?

I can't do an outside repair without digging up the entire driveway.

I am trying to decide betweek an epoxy injection and hydraylic cement.

Basement is currently unfinished mius some studs I put up for future finishing.

House is in Cook County, near Chicago.

I am diverting the 2 downspouts on that side of the house, out to the front yard.
Any help would be great.
