I've been high barring these back squats and boy they got really heavy today. I had to low bar the last two sets. So the question is, low bar or high bar?

All of the squats should be high bar. If you have to adjust the weight down a bit to get the correct movement it should be okay. I would prefer you do the correct exercise with less weight than to try and finish them out with a different exercise.
