Seconding ramrod's comment. Often times the forward lean is a weak back or core or both. It is difficult to diagnose you without any video though.

I have the same problem, front squats helped some and also really focusing on driving my knees out and squeezing my glutes.

OLY squat shoes are great but some squat better in a flatter shoe...

Oly shoes really help when you get below parallel in the squat. They do so because they lean your foot forward slightly so you don't need as much ankle flexibility to keep your foot flat.

If you are looking to squat deeper than Atlantis, low bar is not the way to go. If you're squatting for powerlfiting and just breaking parallel, I would go with it.

I would throw in with the front squat camp. I am the same way, if I EVER miss a squat its not for lack of leg strength, but rather than I lose position and lean too far over. I think front squats work really well and teaching you to really keep your back tall in a squat.

Also, part of it may just be a result of how you are put together. I have a fairly long torso/back, shorter legs, big ass. For me, I have leg strength in spades; they grow fast and well and rarely limit me. But, because of how long my back is, when I get out of position I don't have the strength to overcome the poor leverage. You might be the same way.
