Not a Mercedes experts, only advising from many other models of vehicles I have worked on, through the years.

Generally harmonic balancers are two piece affairs. An inner circle of metal with an outer thick metal ring, and a rubber sleeve in-between them.

When the two parts are put together with the sleeve in-between, TONS of pressure are used to do this. Best solution here would be to buy a new harmonic balancer.

Have you checked the bottom pulley to see if it is/was tight? Is it bent? Is there a bolt that goes through the middle of the balancer to the crankshaft nose? Is it tight?

Not to alarm, but I have seen rare instances where the crankshaft nose was bent. I have also seen instances where it is broken, away from the rest of the crankshaft.

I have a Mercedes Benz C220 1995 model for two years now. Recently when I drive fast like 100-120 km/h i feel a lot of vibration. I do not know why.

Vibration can be caused by many factors, wheel balance, worn tie rod ends, worn steering joints, get the car to a garage and have it inspected for any worn out parts and as well check the wheel balance first.

Vibration at 100 kph (60 mph) after bump with 1988 landcruiser

Whilst not familiar with your vehicle, in mercedes it is called highway hop, and was caused by the universal joint(speed related) that goes to the gearbox,they also added a damper to the diff (weight, frequency related)), , in regards the leaf springs, unless the spring hanger bushes are totally knackered it shouldn't cause problems.
Look at
2)unijoints or excess movement of the gearbox output shafts
3)excess pinion movement of diffs(where the uni joint bolts on)
4)ball joints
5)?bent axle (rare but they do do it)
6)swivel bearings in the front diff
Not sure as to your front end set up, but this may help?
