suggestions please?

I've been running my two day split for some time now and am thinking about changing some things around to stop it getting stale.

back squats (3x8)
standing calf raises (5x12 pyramid)
standing military press (3x7)
wide grip/palms away pull-ups (5x5)

deadlifts (3x8)
seated calf raises (5x12 pyramid)
dips (3x9)
bent over db row (3x8)

(when I started, I was doing 3x10s - I am trying to progress towards 4x6s or even 5x5s)

I'll not loose the squats or deads as I'm making steady progress there, and although the calf work seems a bit ridiculous, I've a obsession and am loath to drop them too. I've wondered whether dips should go with rows, and whether mil.press should go with pull ups, or whether I should partner them up differently - I'd certainly be happy to hear of an improvement that would make the end of my session seem a little less difficult. I get very tired by the end and struggle to complete the session in less than one and a quarter hours, by which time I imagine my cortisol levels are getting up. I'd like to finish inside an hour (excluding warm up/down). I can't make it more days to the gym, but might add a grip day at home some time.

So, if you were in a similar position, what things would you change?

Thanks in anticipation,
