Default

Select both faces, in the channel editor you should see (click to show), click that, you should see x,y,z colomns, select either the x or z axis numbers for both faces in these colomns, (hold down shift to select more than one), they should turn bold, hold control, and middle mouse drag left/right or up/down.

Holding down control will make it so your objects only scale on the axis NOT in bold. This is a little tricky I know, but it does work.

Default thanks, but?

Ok, that works quite well, however when I extrude say one face then go back to object mode, then extrude another, I then get two inputs saying polyExtrudeface01, 02. When I select the local scale of one of those inputs it dosn't allow you to then go and select the local scale of the other, it just cancels the other one out!
