          Should've gone to a dealer and told them you had issues with vibration while driving and have them inspect it.

            If you are going to try it with wood again might want to try building it out of plywood and using multiple layers glued together and possibly bolted down the length of the shaft maybe try and alternate the grain of the plywood when doing that.

              you need to laminate plywood and take to a woodshop to have it turned to the exact size!

                          I think yall should try it with a nice wet green 4x4. Should be a little stronger

                            Apparently too much free time... put either iron wood or some extreme known strong in the lathe and turn it as well as put the remained shafts in lathe and true it all.... knotty wood versus clear wood yada yada

                              you should try screwing cylidrical pieces together to make a long cylinder and then do the same but with a hollow center so it looks like a tube to see if it's stronger.......

                                    Turn the post down on a lathe so you can get it to minimul run out, turn it down 1/2" smaller than I'd of ends, fiberglass it to exact size, then coat in 200mph tape.

                                              how about a pvc pipe wrapped in duct tape???? Maybe start with a 3 inch pvc pipe and build it up with the duct tape till it firs and bolt that bad boy in.

                                                Fun fact, two 2x4s glued and screwed together will be stronger than the 4x4. That would be a good test:)

                                                  You need to lathe the wood shaft to try and make it more balanced I feel like

                                                    Use a couple pieces of rebar it’ll end up twisting together it’ll look cool and if the welds are strong enough it shouldn’t break

I think if you took multiple pieces of plywood and glued them together to make a 4x4 it would be WAY stronger due to the alternating grain of the plywood. It might even handle a burnout. Maybe even wrap it in flex tape for extra stiffness. Bog deep and let 'er eat!
