Your posture is much better - but you're still shifting forward into the bar rather than pushing the bar back into yourself. Try doing some reps with an extremely slow first pull - 3 count or so - to upper thigh, then explode there while keeping your weight back and actively pushing the bar into your upper thighs with your lats. You're just in a bit of a hurry and you're starting your second pull way down at the knees - you have to wait much longer for it. Do that and you'll be far better balanced and quicker.
