Being so tall is def a disadvantage as the bar with 45s is not even half way up your shin. Your hips are flying up as soon as the bar comes off the ground. See if you can get used to squatting low and pausing bottom or low box squats. Have someone watch your form. Hard to judge yourself while doing the lift.
