I’ve used levels and string wound around nails to figure out that sort of thing. If you have a 4 ft level that might be a good one to use. You’d be using it both to assess deviations from plumb but also straightness in the studs. You don’t need everything plumb but you do need to find the high spots.

You can also shim the corners until the diagonal strings touch in the middle. Then shim from there based on those corners being in the same plane. This may be the more sensible approach than planing the studs down.
