Because the IC of the car has likely changed. Rear end rise is desireable because the car is actually "planting" the wheels into the ground for traction. Squat means its pulling the wheels off the ground and losing traction.

I thought the EF/ELs all did this cause they arent fitted with IRS....so i thought they lift rather than bog down.
