If you have 2.6 GPA as of your junior year but a 3.4 GPA for your senior year and do well on your SATs can you get into a good college?

Yes! The sad truth is that once you have one semester of college course work completed your high school grades and test scores are no longer a consideration. University administrators only care if you are able to do the course work. Which tells them more about your abilities??? high school work or college work? Personally I didn't learn anything in high school and didn't even graduate at the top half of my class and it hasn't hindered me at all. If you don't get into the university/college you want the first year just "bloom where you are planted" and then you can transfer later. Transfer students have it a lot easier than first time freshman's trying to compete with every other applicant. My advice, don't even stress about it.
