08 Nomad....Eventually going to be puting a 36 talas and a DHX coil on and I just want some input on which part I should put on first since I am not buying at the same time.....so which upgrade should I do first? Thanks!!

Maybe I'm missing it, but what did you start out with as far as fork and shock are concerned? Your post sounds like you have a whole bike already instead of just a frame...the term "upgrade" is used...so you'll get better advice if we know what's on there now.

OK...this is easy.

Yes it is a complete...domain front, float rear....
At least IMO. The Domain is heavy but it works great for a Nomad. I do not believe that the Float is a good match to the Nomad. Get a piggyback rear shock...like the DHX coil you mentioned...and you'll have a much better Nomad. When weight and some money to burn becomes more of an issue, replace the fork. The DHX coil will give you so many more tuning options across the board. The Domain will perform excellently.

You could grab a manitou evolver, the overwhelming majority of the reviews on it are positive. Saw one on ebay last week, went for $93, it was an 06 model. I would have grabbed it, but I really don't need it, just want to try it out, and I have other things to waste my money on.(MX tune anyone?)
