So does this mean that one side of my engine is running lean and the other rich? Or is it simply time to change them?

P1126 is an overly lean condition on cylinders 4-6 (air leak, low fuel pressure or volume); P0133 (note that is not the code you posted) is for an aging O2 sensor ahead of the TWC on the opposite bank (cylinders 1-3). And you do have a DME, but do not have the Durametric software, which I would recommend as "global" OBD II scanners often generate misleading codes on these cars.
