How long should i wait to ride?

I am ordering a new suspension in the next couple of weeks. And my question is how long should I wait to take my truck out to go ridin, like making it flex and what not. I don't know if there is a waiting amount of time for the new shocks and coils and leafs to get broke in before i go out and test them out. I just don't want to spend alot of money, then have my new suspension all jacked up.

Usually the first thing I do after installing new suspension components is go straight to the trail and flex it out and whatnot to make sure everything works properly.

No break in for suspension. Just be sure to re-torque all the hardware after the first 100miles.
