Replace all the lower capacity disks with 2TB disks.

Only if all the disks installed are 2TB disks.

To get 4k sector partition alignment, yes.

Also if your 2TB disk is 4k sector you will want to do a backup followed by a factory reset.
Should one be using a disk formatted with 4k sectors? Is that the recommended method?
Disks either use 4k sectors or 512-byte sectors. If the partitions are aligned for 512-byte sectors but not for 4k sectors you will have poor write performance if you use any 4k sector disks. So if you choose any 4k sector disks you will need to make sure you are running 4.1.7 or later, backup your data and do a factory reset.
Btw if you download your logs (Status > Logs > Download all logs), extract the zip contents and take a look at volume.log what is the block size?
