Any overloading or overheating will cause the oil to break down and the ring gear and pinion will fail. A ring gear and pinion installation, especially a high numeric ratio with new bearings, can cause an excessive heat build up in the rear end and cause softening of the gear teeth and bearings if a break-in is not performed.
Break-in Procedure - All vehicles and all applications:
To break-in the installation, perform a run-in prior to driving with the rear wheels jacked up, operating at idle speed in high gear for a minimum of five (5) minutes. Then drive the vehicle 10 miles at a normal speed, let cool for one (1) hour and then repeat entire process again.
Notes for Special Use Vehicles:
Vehicles used for Towing:
Vehicles used for towing need approximately 200 - 300 miles of normal street driving before being used for towing.
Circle track race cars:
Make approximately 6 - 8 laps at slow speed, then let cool for 30 minutes, make 6 -8 laps more at slow speed, then 2 -3 laps at full speed, let cool again for 30 minutes.
Drag cars:
Drag cars need only an initial run-in since they are driven short distances and heat is not normally a problem with proper lubrication and backlash allowances.

thats what i do too...worked fine everytime.
