Add shims.

Bob,
As Ron advises, add shims. There are beveled plastic shims made for the purpose to level toilets.
Put a level across the bowl, shim the base level and snug the toilet bolts down so that the toilet cannot rock or move at all.
If your toilet has been rocking, you will need to replace the wax ring before resetting the toilet. To seal properly with a wax ring, the toilet flange should be bolted on top of the finished floor level with only the thickness of the flange itself above finished floor level.
Good Luck!
Mike

Bob,
If it were me, I would get a new plain wax ring and another wax ring with the plastic horn to go on top, scrape the two existing rings out, and replace them. Then reset the toilet and level it with the shims.
You could try it without removing the toilet by just loosening the bolts, adding the shims, and then see if it leaks. I wouldn't chance it if it's upstairs, tho.
Good luck!
