Adjust Avid 1D V-brake- no tension screw for springs

I'm trying to get my Avid 1D V-brakes adjusted and centered- there is no screw on the side of the arm to adjust spring tension. I have been unable to get them perfectly centered- one side always hits before the other. I know I can put a wrench on the spring flats while tightening the mounting bolt, but is there a trick to getting them centered? Thanks.
