Are the tires balanced? Did they use stick on weights, if so? If this holds true, see if there is a mark on the wheel, where a weight has flown off.
How about the front end alignment, and condition of the tires. Sometimes a belt slips in the tire. This is hard to see, but can be found by sliding your hand around the tire, and you will feel a bulge to one side. (Use caution, as there's no telling what may be stuck in your tire/s, and you can damage your hand or fingers. I realize how that sounds. One has to use finesse, when checking one's tires, with this method)

Yes, and it probably is your wheel bearing. Hearing a sound like a chain dragging is classic. You may also hear a clicking noise or chain dragging noise when turning to the left or right.
Look under the car and see if the rubber boots that surround the axle near the tires are cracked and leaking grease. If so, it is almost a certainty that the bearings are bad as you have lost grease and thus lubrication to the bearings.

Hi I am Vortash the main things that cause wheel Vibration are
1/ wheel balancing ( thrown weights mostly )
2/ wheel bearings
3/ susppension arms
4/ ball joints
5/ track rod ends worn
6/ steering shims loose
7/ damaged cv joints or drive shafts (transverse engines )
8/ Prop shaft missalignment (rear wheel drives )
9/ and this is the most popular one tyres not fitted correctly (twisted )
10/ unlikely but more common than you might think Buckled wheels pot hole at 40mph do a lot of damage ..
hope this gives you some ideas and good luck with finding a solution regards Vortash

SOURCE: Vibration at Speed.
i still think universal join in drive shaft is dead or could also be the bearing inside deferential or transy ...
do you hear a funny noise or some thing unusual?

120 km/h is about 75 mph for me. 3400 rpms is not too high. I had the same question. My research says that this car just runs in that range at that speed. No problem needing fixed here.
