Default Biceps./Shoulder Strains From Squats

I have been in a constant the battle this last year with my squat max. I can move 405 for reps, and max around 450 to 470 right now. But if I try to do reps with 430-450+ (high box squats, heavy singles, whatever) I end up straining my shoulder and biceps. It's not a brutal strain, but it does concern me that I might injure it worse in the future.

This is a catch-22 for me. I want to keep pushing more weight on squats, but when I train hard I strain the same area every time. Should I keep pushing through these minor strains and allow my body to adapt and strengthen? Or should I back off?
