When to ask for a CLI

I have 2 Chase accounts that have been opened for years, but recently ive had higher balances on them.


Once I get these paid down, which should be the next month or soon after should I ask for a CLI?


Scores are hovering 680-700..but I know I would get denied as my balances are too close to the limits...but should I pay them down and wait a month? Or can I do it sooner?
