Default Lower back pain!

in transition from crossfit.com to a SS hybrid program, when performing power cleans and front squats, alot of stress is being put on my lower back. Is there a reason for this, or somewhere i could be going wrong in technique. I love cleans so i was hoping for some advice, so i can keep them in the routine.

I am not sure why cleans on SS would be different than they are on Crossfit. Did you do cleans on Crossfit?

Putting up video of your lifts would be your best bet.
