If it is compromised you will know straight away and the decision is made.
If it appears to be ok but your still not sure just replace the fork. And ride with confidence.
Going down a hill wondering if I have to brake hard will the fork also break won't be much fun.
You can't ride a bike if you think it is dangerous.

I'll try that out when I disassemble it for maintenance, thanks; would rather it break in testing at home than while riding. I was also going to tap around the fork to see if it sounded different in that area. I'll be on the lookout for a new fork in the meantime just so i can have confidence in it.
