Decreasing post flex?

Sumer Mo

I have two 2 3/8 steel posts set in 200 lbs of concrete with a nearly 10 ft gate frame attached to them. The posts are flexing and I'm trying to determine if that can be mitigated without me removing and replacing them which would be exceedingly difficult. The house in the photo is my neighbors so attaching to it is not an option.(our yards end at our neighbors houses) I'm considering filling the posts with extra strength concrete and rebar but I'm open to suggestions and ideas. TIA
