Default 31 Floor Cover Over the Rear Spring

When it comes to installing the cover over the rear spring that sticks up through the floor, how tightly is the cover pulled taunt over the spring?

Is it possible that the rear spring might raise up farther?

Thanks for the help.

That is the frame's rear crossmember that protrudes into the car and the body is attached to the frame so no additional protrusion will occur.

Bob is right, as the bump is part of the frame it cannot rise any higher than it already is.
