How do I get a proper load-share on this router running no routing protocols?

Sudhanshu Gupta explains how to get a proper load-share on a router running no routing protocols that achieves a 90% reception and 80% transmission, in this Q&A.

I have a site with Cisco 2811 with two E1s. I have it set to load-share per-packet and IP CEF is enabled. One E1 predominately (90%) receives and the other (80%) transmits. The interfaces are identical in configuration and settings. I am running no routing protocols. How do I get a proper load-share on this router?
If you use a routing protocol like OSPF you can achieve proper load balancing. If you are using static routes, the load balancing you are achieving is quite ok.
Hope this helps.
