You can reinforce/learn a good split with things like split jerks from behind the neck, split push press behind the neck, jerk balances, and obviously just working split jerks with an eye toward proper execution.

You can try combining push and split jerks into a single set, which will help you keep your dip and drive consistent rather than abandoning a vertical drive when split jerking, which is a common problem.

If you can be more specific about what your problem is with the split jerk, we can give you better advice I'm sure.
