The second time i did pause front squats as heavy as possible pausing at rock bottom, i went and ordered Rehband Knee Sleeves right after that and they seem to be helping a good bit.

Try it. I can tell you from personal experience it really goes a long way towards saving the knees. Both of mine are not good, but I can squat heavy weekly thanks to box squats.
