Using the plugin for SCCM you wouldn't be able to add/change any installation switches or command line currently, but that's the only way I'm aware would allow you to actually force the installation to use a different directory, based on info here: JRE Installer Options
Unfortunately we don't currently offer Java 8 updates within the catalog data that can be published with SCUP, where it is possible to add switches for the installer before publishing updates. If you want to request any features around this, please do so at the Shavlik Feature Request Form.
The only other thing I've seen as a possible workaround for the install directory is to try creating a soft/symbolic link that points to the version of Java you want.
How to create soft links: Mklink
The downside to this is you will have to update the soft link with every Java release.
I hope this helps.
