I put a sticker on the wall about eye level when in squat position and keep my eyes on that spot throughout the lift. It helps me keep my head in the proper position. Before I did that, I had the same problem with going forward out of the hole. Not so anymore. I don't know why, but my dead is much higher than my squat also. Must be in the mind, all that weight on your back or that I love deads and dread squats .
