Leveling a TRD Pro- just new shocks?

2016 TRD pro. 90k miles and shocks been leaking since 80k miles. Disappointed that they didn’t last that long with 98% highway and city driving and 2% easy trails.

Possibly according to one shop small crack in bushings of control arms (I think lower)

If finances are tight - can I just replace with same shocks Bilstein 5160/6112 and level the front (2” lift?) and be good?

Or will 2” front (1” over stock minor lift?) make it so I would need new springs to lift rear?

Still gonna be 98% highway driving San Diego to Los Angeles and back once a week unless money gets better and do more trails leading first responders and vets groups for more nature time and community.

You definitely do NOT need new springs. That small of a lift can be done with spacers or shocks with spring mounts (front).
