Yes, you can still drive the car but you will see more body roll.
The body roll will be more than you are use to so don't drive hard into a corner.
The real question is how did you end up in this situation?
Was it not installed properly and the nut came off or did it rust apart?
You should fix it or replace both endlinks as soon as you can.
I lost an endlink a few weeks ago on a gnarly back road. It made a pretty loud "Sproing".
When I got it in the air to install the new ones, I discovered a hellacious tear in my inner CV boot.
I lost it at the upper joint and I'm not sure if it was the floppin' link that got it,
( I was putting the suspension under extreme "end of travel" duress on that trip)
but I'd say Fix It ASAP... http://********************/smile/emthup.gif
I agree with JRL. I drove my '98 V70R with worn out end links and an old sway bar. What an awful ride.
100% better with IPD sway bars and new end links. But I never felt unsafe, although it did sound/feel like something was going to fall off going over bumps.
