As the car rolls, the leaf spring bends and the two ends get farther apart. Because the front eye is bolted to the frame and the rear eye is attached to a free moving shackle, the rear axle will move rearward under bump. This is attractive on tight dirt racetracks. As the moisture in the track dries up and the track slows down, there is less g-force rolling the car and with less movement of the spring, there is less rear steer.
