Coming from someone who tore his L4 and L5 the best thing I can recommend for your squat stuff is high box squats (15").

Having the box to pause on take the additional strain off your lower back and will allow you to keep more upright (or at least focus on it if you have bad form). Something to try if you really want to get your squats in rather than leg press.

I wrote that. It's the workout style I used to build most of my mass.

It's more on an intermediate style program so someone who has built a good base. You train in multiple rep ranges, from heavy, to hypertrophy to pump finishers.

It might need some reworking, as that is an old article, but the general concept is sound for bodybuilding.
