    It's safe - it'll just have more bump steer, and will tend to wander a little more.

    I'd get the tie-rod fixed soon. If its tweaked your front tires will be more towed in causing excessive tire wear and maybe some spooky handling. If everything else on the front end is OK then driving without a stabilizer for a while is fine.
