Van -

Definitely post some video and we'll all be able to give you much more useful suggestions. I agree with what Dave and Michael have said though.

I also like floating clean pulls - first rep regular clean pull, then lower the bar to as close to the floor as you can without it touching, hold, next rep pull, repeat. You can also do these on a riser, which will allow you to bring the bar to the full bottom position while still not touching the floor (and also give you 1 rep of a deficit pull to start with). Not only will they get you strong, they're great for putting you into a good position.
