Would have thought if it was wheel bearing you'd notice it all the time apart from when crawling not just 60+mph.

As Gibbo has already mentioned check wheels aren't buckled and that they are balanced. Also condition of tyres I've seen tryes go out of shape before and cause the ride to be terrible

Rear track arms on 406's are prone to failure.

Thanks CAB,
I will start by getting the Wheels and tyres checked and balanced and see where it goes from there.

Thanks again for the help.
