add disks to swift

Hi, I have a swift cluster with 3 zone (replica 3) with 4 equal disks for each zone (8TB a disk). Each disk has a weight = 8000 for a total weight of 32000 in each zone. Now I have to add one disk per zone, for a total of 3 new equal (8TB) disks in the cluster. I think I need to add one disk at a time, but if I add the first disk in z1 with a weight of 8000, the total weight of z1 will be 40000. This means that z1 will have more datas than z2 and z3 until I add the disk to the remaing zones. Is this correct? Is this the right procedure? Is there some common way to avoid this behavior? Thank you
