    Nomads are fine with coils, work better than with air shocks IMHO, depends on what you like, if you don't mind the weight. I think the performance of my Nomad with Fox air shocks (DHX Air, Float) isn't even in the same league as with my DHX 5.0 coil. I don't think you mean wheelbase, you mean shock eye-to-eye length with the numbers you cited. I have used only 8.5 inch eye to eye (2.5 stroke) shocks FWIW.

    Thank you for your response; wanted measures in cm eye for an eye from 8.5 to 8.75 (216/222) but apart from the fox dhx said there is someone who has proven with other shock (manitou swinger / revox, romic ?)
