You are also supposed to switch up your max effort exercises every 1-3 weeks which you do not do on Wendler's program. It is throwing off the set up of westside, it is a hybrid, things are going to be messed up from both programs. You will still be applying a max effort on your final set, by going for a maximum number of reps.

I am not really sure what you are saying but I did something like this before for a while, basically my lower body days include ME and DE, like on ME squat days I did DE deadlifts vice versa, I see no problem with this. Just my personal opinion, I do not see any decrease in my deadlifts after squatting. Sometimes I think it helps, but I understand not wanting to max out 2 lifts on the same day, so your way sounds good.
