Double the weight that you have in the balsa baits. The reason that they are leaning is that they are too light. Balsa is very forgiving about wieghting. So double the weight should not hurt them at all. You still may have to adjust the weight, but this will get you going in the right direction. Your real eratic action is probably due to the light weight. The thing is probably bouncing all over the place. This is a weight problem.
