I feel you are "overthinking" the form and trying to worry about not dropping your hips to far..if you just go down grab it, sink your hips, pick up your chest and pull..it could fix it a little!
The 1st set is how I normally set up and pull. Then the other sets was me trying to change things. I'll try just gripping and ripping next week for a set and see how it looks.

Finally stalled on my 5x5 bench today. It was the 5th week I've been adding 5 lbs so I guess I was bound to stall. It was supposed to be 90% of my old max.

Bench
225x5
225x5
225x3
205x5
205x6

Did some wide grip, no leg drive bench with 135 afterwards. Also did some military and push press with 115 and 150. Just did various high rep stuff to get in volume on my chest and front delts.

Friday Workout 2/3/12

Squat
4 sets of 4 @ 360
1 set of 6 @ 360 (max reps set)

Goodmornings
225x3x3

Messed around with some hip thrusters with 135 and 225 afterwards. Don't have a pad or anything so 225 hurts more than it is hard. Also foam rolled a bit at the end. Felt pretty good yesterday and today. Might have to do it more often.

2/8/12

Squat
4 sets of 5 @ 350

Deadlift
5 sets of 1 @ 355

Not a particularly good day but it kind of made sense since I barely ate before lifting. Supposed to be 4 sets of 4-6 so I was hoping to get 6s but I'll take 5s.
