Yes, that is an issue. I'm not sure if you can get a center pin with a taller head, but that would fix it. The best soulution would be shims that bolt on to the bottom of the spring pack. That way, the entire center bolt head sticks out. You have to get new shims however. I don't know who would sell them, but all of the Skyjacker springs I've seen use shims like this.
What I do when I put shims on leaf springs is to get a longer centering pin and put it through the shim and leaf springs. That way the shim is essentially bolted to the spring back and can't spit out easily.
