The forks should be fine, but at the least you should install the slotted nut, maybe regrease the bearings then set the pre-load for the bearings and see how it feels.

Whilst riding at 30mph with a loose grip, if too tight, the bike will feel like it wants to wander back and forth. If too loose, you'll get some headshake.

You might get lucky.
