i have tenzo r's 2" front and 2.5" in the back. and a shop we probably charge a few hundred to do the job. You can always do it yourself, it's not hard.

I have B&G springs and it's very easy to do yourself if you have tools.

i kept the same shocks and struts. just gotta watch out for stuff a little more other than that you will be fine. it makes the ride more stiff too. make sure to get an alignment also.
