You're far safer thinking it's more risky to drive than thinking it's fine because some here have said it's fine. I don't know that we know enough to guess; thus, if you're going to err, do so on the side of caution--which side doesn't have a $1000+ repair ticket!
Again, advice taken seriously. Thanks for all your care DMax, i appreciate it. I'll let you know how this all turns out in the near future!
