I would change your rep range to be between 6-10 on all of your lifts and what are you trying to do with your workouts?
get bigger, faster, stronger what are your goals?

Pure strength, i've put a fair amount of bf on my bulk(13%) and want to maintain my weight while getting some more strength. Why make the reps higher?

I would add more reps because when you are doing lower rep sets it's harder for your body to achieve muscular hypertrophy
also with higher rep sets your body will be put under more stress which can lead to more gains
low reps also tend to let your body quickly adjust to them as long as you keep pushing yourself hard and shifting the rep range between 6 and 10 your body won't adjust as easily

I'm not bulking, I'm going for strength. I mean i understand what you're saying but I read you're not even supposed to do front squats above 6 reps for lower back reasons. same goes for deadlifts

I personally do front squats and deadlifts for many more reps than that and many pros do as well
I don't experience lower back pain the main reason for lower back problems stemming from that do not occur because of the number of reps on an exercise but instead because of problems with their form
and strength and size go hand in hand you aren't going to get bigger without getting stronger and you aren't going to get stronger without bigger

Personally I would keep the dead rep range low as you have done - I work for hypertrophy predominantly but still work that lift in the low rep range. If you are going predominantly for strength then you are right to focus primarily on lower reps. It might be worth undulating loads and adjusting rep ranges according to the loads between 3-6 reps. The exercise choice is good though particularly utilizing the oly lifts which will help all over power. However I'd be inclined to swap round the pushpresses with the bench every other week so you get a balance and work the chest a bit more which looks to be slightly neglected with this routine. Just a thought.

I've found that adding dbell pullovers 4X8 and dips 4Xfailure helped boost my bench while breaking my legs into two days, quads emphasis and hams emphasis, added much needed size and strength.

I wanted big strength gains and I stuck primarily with the big 3 (squat, dead lift, bench) but I eventually hit a point where I just wasn't improving as much. I added a little more supplemental lifts and I started seeing good gains again.

Throw in some incline bench, dumbell pullover for tris, dips, and leg press. You have a pretty good routine these are just some things I do.
