thanks Rob,
You hit the nail on the nail on the head - it's a complete comfort issue for me. I'm doing both the exercises you suggested.

Today with my front squats, I paused at the bottom of each rep and I felt really solid with the rack. I'm not going to make a habit of it. But I know I do it when I do tall cleans and attempt to do squat cleans and full squat snatches.

Anytime the weight gets over a certain amount, I revert to my old self and do a reverse power curl with the clean and a muscle snatch. But I'm learning.

All the best,
