Default Incorporating the hamstrings for deads

Been working on my dead-lift now for about 8 months.

I've bested at 435lbs x 1.

Recently (for the last 3 weeks) I've noticed a lot of pull on my lower back when I'm lifting. My lower back will be sore for a few days....nothing too painful just sore.

I've heard from coaches namely Rippletoe on CrossFit, that you need to activate the hamstrings when you pull.

My questions are:

1. Should you feel a lot of pull in the lower back, which I'm feeling?

2. How to activate your hamstrings when you pull?
