I like a closer grip on the squat, but go extra wide for shoulder reasons. I will even use a 45 degree false grip to help with wrist and shoulder strain.
Also, play around with placement on the back. I feel more strain the lower the bar is placed. You could possibly place the bar a tad bit higher to counter the downward pull on the delt.
that is when i really feel the strain, but the bar feels so much better there than on my traps
