Just go as low as you can go before losing balance. You need to train the nervous system to stabilise, before being able to go lower, also try some self myofacial release for the legs before working out it could be that you're very tight and your body is unable to move as efficiently. But as the others have said chair squats help but rather than sit all the way down and unload all the force see if you can hold it just before sitting down.
