I wanted the Kavant-1 module to include the Sophora instrument truss. To keep it from unbalancing the craft, I made a duplicate and attached it to the other side with a decoupler. This was very difficult to fly but addi8ng the FGB tug (based on the TKS) made it easier to get to orbit and was more historically accurate as the Kvant-1 was the only Mir module that could not be docked under its own power.

Stage once you reach space. It does make the craft pull to one side after that but not too much that you can’t compensate.

If you find this too difficult to launch, strip off the trusses and add a fairing.
