OME Camber issue/resolution?

I will start this off by stating I am by no means mechanically inclined. I purchased a used 2010 Tacoma TRD Offroad and have been happy with it and simply wanted more height. I got a Toyota dealership installed OME 3 inch suspension lift done last week.
I'm already regretting getting this done as the rides much poorer than it was before and when taking even minor bumps in the road it feels like its slamming into the dash (if that makes sense). As well the front wheels are angled in towards the bottom (camber?) I've had it back to the dealership once already, spent three hours there and was told everything is fine, and that the camber is at its maximum adjustment and that its normal that the wheels will wear on the outside.
I've got another appointment with them tomorrow.....is this really the way it is? I see plenty of Tacomas around here with lifts and their tires are straight.
Thanks for any help

Your adjustment for camber and caster may be limited if you are running the stock UCA's

As posted above , there are lots of options

I got the Light Racing UCA's for my own truck as I liked the adjustability as well as the booted ball joint for my winter driving conditions
