Nope. DOA. Is there a replacement warranty?

Cracks and breaks can be fixed although it does not mean it should be. If the repair seems a risk then it should not be done, having said that I have found some repairs to be manufacturing faults so riding any bike is a risk too.

Are the back tires or axle bent from factroy to make it look like the wheels are bent on a 3 wheel bike

I assume you are referring to push bikes where the rear wheels are at an angle to the road. The axles are fitted to the frame at an angle and this is done to give them more grip when they go fast around corners. If you look at the front wheels on race cars you will often find them the same. Sports wheel chairs are also the same. It is done by design.

Giant advanced defy 1 carbon frame. then ride bike can feel every bump in the road.

You have a very expensive, high-performance road bike. It is built for speed, not comfort. If a slightly larger width tire would fit that would give you some relief, as would a suspension seat post.

I have an old 12 speed racing bike with the shifters on the frame.i wish to either have thumb shifters on the handle bars or end bar shifters but i cant find either,any suggestions please

You haven't looked hard enough. eBay has everything. Unless you have a Campi drivetrain, go with Shimano or Suntour if you can find them.

But they're 'spensive.

I recently acquired an old '84 Cannondale road bike (before they had model numbers) that had all original Suntour 2x6 with downtube shifters on it. Now it's a full Campi-Ergo-equipped 2x9 with FSA compact carbon crank, aero-bar mountain climbing road rocket.

Perhaps, the dropouts on frames and forks are are usually metal and the serrated surface of the Quick Relase Skewers normally digs through the paint to find a purchase in metal.

This forum discusses Look forks with carbon dropouts.

If your unnamed fork's dropouts are indeed carbon does your owner's manual specify and special handling or skewers for them?

Read about 'boutique' skewers.

I suppose that the required quality of the frame repair depends partly on how much you plan to stress the frame before you have the opportunity to do a complete repair. I suggest you take it easy on the truck (don't go wheeling) until the frame is fully repaired and reinforced.

I have a 1989 jeep cherokee with 32 inch tires and a 6 or more inch lift i just put on a sway bar and a steering shock but the steering is still all over the road what could it be

First of all, lets look at the obvious. When installing a tire that large the tendency of the tire is to follow every crack and crevice in the road. By raising it up you totally change the steering geometry. This being said, it may still not be the problem. I have run tall tire with lift kits for years.
Take a look at the steering box where it mounts to the frame. Larger tires have a tendency to put more pressure on the steering gear box. It can range from causing the mounting bolts to loosen to causing small cracks in the frame. If the steering gear box moves even in the slightest it will be practically impossible to hold in the road.
Another possibility is worn piston seals inside the steering gear box. When they leak, or bypass, the gear box becomes sluggish and you will find yourself chasing it all over the place.

On my bike the silver frame that holds the back wheel on and connected to the main frame has snapped where can i buy this part and at what cost pls

This is called the dropout. It depends on what material the frame is. If steel, a bike builder will be able to braze a new one on. If aluminium, this is still possible, but specialist bike builder or aluminium welder needed. If carbon fibre, need to take back to manufacturer.
