Torso twisting during squats

Hey guys,

I recently started noticing that on my squats (to parallel), the bar seems to travel completely vertically on my right side, but not so much on the left side...

The bar on the left side goes forward...

Anyone know what's going on here?  Never heard of such a thing before...

Additional info:

I do my squats after jump session (single leg), so my left leg gets worked a lot before... My work capacity is pretty high though so I don't think I'm tired or anything.  The jump session always primes me for better squats...

My left leg is also slightly longer than my right...

My bet would be different dorsiflexion levels for each ankle.

That...or core strength is being comprised.  The wife had this issue the first time she ATG squatted 135+. After a few weeks of core stabilization work its much less pronounced.
