Take it off and check the bearing for any play.

no youll probably need a new one...go to advanced auto parts and order a used one...its half the price

new one=$230
used one=$100

Check the back, this part should have no play. If it wiggles around it's bad.

You can adjust it later, do you have a timing light? Or a friend with one?

What?!

There's no way to replace a distributor w/out having to set the ignition timing. And ignition timing is absolutely critical. You can't just "do it later".

Luckily it's very simple and you can use a cheap timing light. Make sure you jumper the ECU. Download the repair manual for the procedure.
