Best practice for rebalancing SAS connections?

I have a situation where a customer has maxed out all of the existing SAS ports on their system ( 2 quad port SAS HBAS). We will be adding a new Stack along with another SAS quad port HBA. Can I safely rebalance all the existing stack connections across the new card along with the existing cards? Is it reccemended to do so ? My concern is that it I were to use only the new HBA for the new stack, it  would be on a single card. Any thoughts ?
