Default Watts Link Bell Crank

There is some great info on the forum about replacing this part, which I need to do and have ordered part from US. I am in UK and it is cheaper to buy from the US and pay the shipping than buy here!

My questions is, whilst I wait for the part and keep on driving, with the banging noise, what would happen if anything finally snapped? Basically, should I stop driving the car until it is repair?

Check to see if it has a bunch of play. If not don't worry. Also check to see if you can shake the spare tire. These rattle quite often. Check the tie rod ends on the bell crank.

Oh, it has lots of play, tried the easy things first then scrambled under car last night and grabbed the crank, it pulls front to back real easy. Probably moves up to 1/4" - 1/2" at the ends.
