Default OHS vs FS and squatting everyday

Anybody elses Overhead squat close in comparison to their Front squat?About 2 months ago I did 253(110kg) on OHS for a double. Best Front squat is about 285-95. Best C&J is 112.5 kg, best snatch 92.5. Thing is I don't train the OHS more than the front squat but I definitely like it more. Going to start squatting everyday (5x2 lots of rest in between), back squat mainly to just try and get stronger and hopefully have some carry over to get the lifts going up. Technique is not my limiting factor, IMO.

My max OHS is 155lbs, and my max front squat is 235lbs with a back squat of 260lbs, clean and jerk of 176lbs and snatch of 135lbs (130lb female). But my main problem with doing a heavier overhead squat is getting the bar overhead, but havent gone for a max in a while.

After O-lifting sessions I will typically do 3 sets of 3 back squats 2xs a week and 3 sets of 3 front squats 2xs a week on alternating days at about 85% but never touch overhead squats.
