Hi Terrell, yes I have a p trap and waste over flow.
Second pi is with the tailpiece, it sits higher then the floor. The very last pic is with no tailpiece and it’s level with the floor.

I’m not sure how you know what height the tub shoe is suppose to be. You may need that tail peice.
I was going off what two different plumbers told me. That it’s a below floor installation. They both wanted to rip you my flooring and drop the p trapI’m not sure how you know what height the tub shoe is suppose to be. You may need that tail peice.
I did dry set the tub. I put a 1/4” piece of cardboard under (made plumb w/ surrounding walls) marked the drain location and then removed and did measurements. The drain will align. That why I’m so confused on the extent the plumbers want to go to for the height. I will dry fit again tomorrow with drain kit in p trap to confirm height. I really appreciate your help.Have you looked at the tub you're installing and done the measurements? Normally the tub where it connects to the drain is a little higher than the plywood flooring. You have a standard looking installation so far.
Good luck with your project, and hopefully you can find a plumber in your area that isn't a moron/con, which seems to me like what the two you told us about are. Did either of them explain why they wanted to do the work they described? Maybe there is a code issue that we can't see in your pics. Doesn't really seem like there would be though.Sorry, thought that is what I had joined , since I was accepted. I have since realized this is a pros only site. My apologies.
And yet many of the tubs sold by Kohler have slip joint drains. All of the Geberit drains have them. Yes, code wants glued joints, but she's not doing it where I'm inspecting. Will it work? Yes, I did drains with slip joints for decades. You sure worry a lot.without an access most codes do not allow slip joint tub wastes. Better call Saul
