sorry.. yet another squat problem

Squatting with poor form is causing me considerable low back pain. When the weight gets up in the 300 lb range I experience this. I push my knees out and have a wide stance. I only go to parallel . And I sit back in the squat. I do think my bar position may be too high. I rest it across the top of my shoulder blades. I noticed with anything above 300 that on some reps I have a lot of foreward lean. At first I thought the weight was too heavy...

But I just did a squat test where you put your toes on a wall and touch your chest and chin to the wall and squat back. I get to about a quarter squat , and lose my balance backwards ! So I'm thinking a balance issue may be causing me to pitch foreward. Ideas? Thanks
