    Question should my squat catch up to the deadlift

    I got started on LP but not through starting strength and then I started doing this program,
    as a result, ,I didn't do phase 1 of the program so as to establish my lifts where they should be and get my deadlift well ahead of the squat, I just started with the empty bar for the squat, and 90 pounds for the deadlift(45 pound difference), with 10 pound increases for the deadlift so that difference was maintained

    my numbers for the lifts are now 220-175 at 155 bodyweight,
    I am now doing phase 2 of the program,
    I have not failed on either lifts,
    I am considering if I should try to widen the gap with 15/12.5 increases for the deadlift, stay with 10 pounds until it becomes too hard to recover, or just drop to 5 pound increments immediately.

    1.how should I go about this?
    2.if I drop to 5, the deadlift will start to be stronger than the squat in 6 weeks, should I just proceed with that?

    Thank you for your help

    Question

    I have read the book and am changing my programming and diet, so I can be doing the program.

    so I guess my question is: should I worry about the squat catching up to the deadlift in phase 2
