Bathtub Moves

Hey everyone I am new to the forum.
So I am remodeling a bathtub the problem is I cannot get it flat. This is the first bathtub install i have done. I can get everything level but when i step inside of the tub which is steel enamel it wiggles just a tiny bit. It has the foam on the bottom so I have not put it in a motar bed.
Through all the trials that I have tried the conclusion is that the subfloor must be off a bit somewhere. So anyone have any suggestions. The only thing I can think of next is to pull the tub and pour self level down or make a motarbed.

Thank You!

Use some mortar ---the foam itself might be tweaked a bit-- That is tried and true--simple and quick.---Mike--
