My previous potentiometer had a resistor value of 10k - is it safe to use a displacement transducer with a 5kΩ resistor value?

Yes. A displacement transducer is a voltage divider (not a variable resistor) so resistive value is of little importance
unless the data acquisition system has specific requirements. Be careful however to observe the power supply
capabilities to define maximum absorbed current.
