I use bubble levels. Here is my left/right. My front/rear is on the bulkhead to the left of the drivers seat.

The carpenters level I used to calibrate zero point and the torpedo level used to verify the top of the monitor for setting the bubble level have no degree marks.
The bubble level, pictured above, has bubble end marks. There is a little "slop" from end to end so anything inside the lines is considered di minimus or in basic terms, close enough for government work.

I have that for my iphone. Its called Johnson's Bubble Level.
Having a hard time keeping it calibrated with all the ios updates.
It gives degrees along with the bubble and you can set it for percent and metric values.

Then you have to have a known level spot to set the phone on in order to use it. Not as convienient as anticipated.

I was told leveling is important for proper slide operation as well.
