This is a good point, but doesn't really explain why you have high readings on the freeway and not at slower speeds.

What puller fan did you install? Is there a shroud? how is it controlled?

Nope, but I suppose they might by a little. Judging by engine movement, there is no stiffening detected.

The intent is to limit movement if/when they decide to separate under stress.
