Lift For 00 Expedition with 4 wheel air shocks

So im looking into doing a lift on my 00 expedition, and Ive had 3 different people tell me 3 different things about it.

First i was told I can only do a body lift.
Then I was told I can do a suspension lift, but ill need to drop the front shock brackets 4"
And finally i was told by fab tech that I can install their kit, everything bolts up, but I cant use their front shocks because they will pull out of the top mounting hole, so my thought with that is weld a plate over the top with a smaller hole

So whats true and whats not? Ive also been told that with a 3" body lift I can clear 35" tires, or I can clear 33's in stock form. but on fab-techs site they say with a 6" suspension lift you can only clear 33's with some trimming, I would appreciate someone clearing this up for me

I have 33x12.5x17 on the stock rims.
I had only to change the height sensor in front and rear and the torsin bars.

What year is your expedition, it seems to me the newer ones have some more clearance then mine does, could be wrong though
