I don't balance 4-blades (I don't even know how to be honest) but I have never had to in the past. I always check for proper rotation and the props were spinning perfectly. No wobble at all. However, I did note that the props were VERY close to the front of the cowl.

I think we have found our answer.

There needs to be more clearance between the prop swing and the front of the cowl. Both the P-47 and F4U have become victims to this issue. I will be contacting FMS about this. Something needs to be done here.
