Weird rumble in steering wheel at highway speeds

Okay, ever since I wrecked my wrx over big curb last year, I got new tires, new lower control arms, and a new swaybar endlink on one side because it broke. I also balanced all my wheels and got the car aligned at sears. before I wrecked I could do 120mph and it barely felt like I was going that fast. now when I got 60 or above the steering wheel will rumble. around 65mph the steering will rumble, 4 second delay, then it will rumble again and continue that process. the faster I go the more it does it, I did 100mph and it was like i was driving over some extreme rumble strips. I also replaced all the break rotors and pads. now just driving at normal speeds any time i turn the steering wheel right at all it makes this light grinding alittle squeeling sound. could I have a bent front wheel bearing or something? Any help is appreciated!

Sounds like a wheel bearing to me. Please don't drive triple digit speeds on public roads, the life you save could be mine
