I'm am non experienced at shower remodeling yet will attempt to install a 4 piece (Sterling)shower kit into previously tiled shower stall. I understand the kit instructions but want to know if I can install the shower base on top of existing concrete base after removing the curb. The drain pipe does line up properly with the new base although I may need to change the trap. FYI the house foundation is concrete slab.

Thanks in advance for all responses

I have done this before, but you have to remove enough so that when you set the shower, the front rim sits on the floor. In addition, You have to break up enough, that you can connect an extention up from the existing trap to the new strainer in the bottom of the shower. Typically you can break around the drain and connect it with a mission coupling. Then pour some wet mortar on the floor when your setting the shower base so you can level it off and support the bottom of the shower.
