Air suspension to coil questions.

Hey all, long time no see!

Anyhow, I have a 2000 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer 4 wheel drive with a possibly leaking air suspension system. I purchased the coils for the rear so I can get rid of the system altogether. My problem is, I ran into some information that says if I have an air leveling shock on the front, I can just replace with gas shocks. But if it's an all bag system, I have to go with coil-over shocks on the front. My question is what's the physical difference?

I have these on the front:

I'm assuming an all bag system will have variants of the rear bag system on the front. But I'm not too sure.

The root reason for my question is if it's a leveling system on the front, the torsion bars are big enough fr the lifting. With true bags on the front, it's either coil-overs or new torsion bars out of an F150 7700. But that will make it ride like a shopping cart.

Thanks for your help!
