I re-set my C's using the same style of magnetic degree dial as you describe. Seems to me there is a chance of a small difference side to side with this method, but I have no issues. If you have an extra $30 and you really want to go double check your work, go buy one of the cheaper digital levels at Sears. I now have the twelve inch version and use it constantly. It is magnetic and will tell you what the angle is to .1 degree.
Otherwise there are too many other factors that are probably all contributing to your pulling issue. You didn't specifically mention "toe", but IIRC the spec is about 1/8". It may be time to check your measurements one more time then go with your gut and finish things up so you can get the suspension and new rubber under it. As long as your are close, minor adjustments or a trip to a reputable alignment shop should clear up any remaining issues.
FWIW I had a bit of a toe in issue with mine out of the gate... just a brain fart measurement. Once that was correct, it fles straight as an arrow with no sway bar and no stering stabilizer needed.
Is this the only hammer you've got?
