I think you are on the ragged edge of *yes*.

I understand that 4+ = for sure, not a matter of if but when.

3.5.... close enough to make me want to plan for a DS failure and either swap it out or not be surprised when it goes.

What size tires and how bad does the angle look?

Manual or auto? I think if manual than you should be ok for a while until it gives, giving you time to save or w/e, if its auto than I think ur better off planning for sooner than later if you wheel hard/frequently.
