Focus on being more upright in the pull and moving back to your heels as you leave the floor. The reason you're leaning into the bar on the way under is because you're moving forward. Drop your hips and lift your chest a bit in the starting position, and as you leave move bar, knees, hips and shoulders back as you move up so that within a couple inches of bar movement, you're balanced toward the heels and can stay there as you finish extending.
