I guess my question is, how do i fix the early arm bend that's consistent in my oly lifts? Why do I resort to a "Power" anything at the last second when the weight gets heavy?

Early arm bend is a tough one - try high hang work

Powering the lifts - same thing and focus on not powering the lift. Also, STOP doing any powers, always ride them into full squat position, sit there to get comfortable in position.

Tall cleans (or snatches if you're experiencing the same thing in the snatch) or high hang lifts (with no hip angle break if possible) will help correct that arm bend issue. You can also work from blocks. You can also do pulls + lift (e.g. 2 pulls + snatch/clean) and making sure that you focus on the technique during those 2 pulls.

Hope this helps!

Thanks guys. Can you elaborate on "no hip angle break," I don't understand. I like your prayer, I pray a similar one.

He means keep the torso vertical rather than bending at the hip and leaning over the bar.
