You want to be feeling it in your quads. Your ass won't be sure until the next day or so. If you can't keep a good form use less weight until you have perfected the form. Also, use a machine for awhile. Either the Smith cage or some variation with padded shoulder yokes. You probably have certain muscle groups that are so strong you think you can use an amount of weight most of your balance muscles cannot handle.

I found this article useful a few years ago while I was trying to build up my vertical jump via squats. Be careful with your knees. If they get sore or start "clicking" or "popping" ease up on the weight and give them time to heal.
