Would a rubber spacer be a safe option too?
Probably not the best idea. If you want to add a spacer to push the axle even farther above the spring, you should probably use plate steel, and make sure it has a hole so the pin goes through to the dimple in the axle. You REALLY don't want the axle sliding around on the springs.

You could also check with local trailer shops to see if they have a spring pack with a lower arch. You might need a stiffer pack to avoid bottoming out, though, so it might lead to a bouncier ride.
