ok, Ran one lap and the shaft snapped at the nuckle as soon as I stepped on the gas. I placed an angle finder on the shaft and got a positive 7 degree's forward. Off the rear yoke I got a 7 degree's downward angle. Does that make my pinion angle 14 degree's!! Would a worn leaf cause that to happen? WOW 14 degree's. I didn't adjust the rear at all since last season, so I'm really wondering why this is so high.

Any help would be much appreciated.

14 degrees is fine. Leaves won't affect effect pinion angle much unless bushings are clear gone or you have something broke. I assume your at somewhere close same ride height as last year. ***NOTE*** ***NOW HEAR THIS!!*** NOW HEAR THIS***
