Pre hung metal fire rated door

I purchased a metal pre hung fire rated door for my garage that has an adjustable hollow metal frame. It is basically split frame construction as someone on the other forum pointed out.

How do you go about squaring up the door and checking for level and plumb?

It says in the manual to put shims underneath the threshold, but does not mention between the hinge jamb or the latch side jamb. I have installed pre hung wood doors before, not metal though.

It is a jeld wen pre hung fire rated door 90 minute rating.
