2. Add Move Action for keyway:

3. Modify Distance Multiplier of Action:

Select Move Action and modify the default value from 1 to 0.5 in the property of distance multiplier, save an exit block editor.

4. Test Dynamic Block:

Stretch leftwards grip and with grip moving leftwards, the smaller diameter shaft will appear stretch effect, keyway also will move leftwards accordingly, meanwhile, keyway is in the center of smaller diameter shaft of step shaft all the time, as the following picture.

Although Stretch and Move have a common parameter, but when Distance Multiplier of Move is modified as 0.5, the displacement of Move can only stretch 0.5 times of displacement.
