I was just wondering, I know a lot has to do with personal recovery time, but on average, how long do you guys usually rest between deadlifts and squat, I'm currently doing deadlifts on Tuesday, then squatting on Thursday, I'm wondering if I should space it our more or if I can keep it the way it is?

It's best to leave 3 days between the two, like Deads on Monday and squats on Friday then 3 days later deads again and so on.
If you can't then it's fine, you will however be compromising your second lift a bit, which in your case is the squat.
However, by doing those two on Tuesday and Thursday it is possible to reverse the order the next week because there's a 5 day gap so you can do squats on Thursday and again on Tuesday followed by deads and then reverse again.
As long as the rest of your program allows it of course.
