Mortar bed for Sterling tub

I've been reading quite a few of the posts on here about installing a mortar bed under the tub to level the tub and prevent creaks. (Installing over 3/4" plywood.)

I'd like to do something like this, however my tub (Sterling Ensemble 32") doesn't really have a "grid" type base -- it has 15-20 little "feet" that the tub rests on. Each foot is 2", maybe 3" tall.

Would this affect my mortar base install method? Or should I just follow along and make a 2" bed and press the tub into it?
