Circumferential Restraint is Restraining Radially

I'm experiencing a problem simulating a torsional restraint while allowing radial deflection in a cantilevered shaft with an overhung load. I've selected the cylindrical surface restraint and only selected a circumferential restraint. The radial direction deflection results are one or two orders of magnitude smaller than expected. Any advice on this matter?\

Thanks.
