I want to level my new US Tower HDX-589.  I put a 4' carpenter's level on 
all three legs of the base section and have levelled them.  This is all US 
Tower recommends.

Is there anything more I can do?  I have heard of using two theodolytes with 
it fully extended.  But I figure the sections must lean a bit due to the 
clearances that allow them to slide past each other.  I don't want to tilt 
the bottom section to compensate for that lean, since different antenna 
loads or wind loads will probably make it lean different directions.

With the bottom section leveled, am I done?
