I noticed that I sometimes tend to lean back when I loop or drive (which is obviously a sign of wrong form). I'm guessing it's a problem with me shifting weight from right to left and instead keeping the weight on my right leg forcing me to lean back to take the shot. I'm not sure though. What usually causes someone to lean back on shots and how do you fix it? Thanks.
You are probably right. Balance is usually the key with these sorts of issues.
Really focus on making sure that during and directly after each shot that you are in a balanced position and have the ability to move in any direction. You can do this with a little jump to balance yourself up again or just transfer your weight into the balanced position. Focus on how much weight is on your left and your right foot at the point of contacting the ball and also straight after you have finished your stroke.
You will probably find that most of the weight is on your back foot when you are contacting the ball which is forcing you to fall backwards.
