Mustee 3060L shower pan

I am installing a Mustee 3060L acrylic shower pan in my basement bathroon. This will be installed on concrete. I am having a challenging time figuring out how exactly go go about installing this. The "manual" says use silicone between the pan flange and the studs to eliminate squeaking. It also suggests using a thinset mortar if the pan is not level. No marks or predrilled holes on flange. Is the mortar necessary if the pan is completely level. How should I go about fastening it to the studs, if at all?

"...suggests using a thinset mortar if the pan is not level."
If your floor and pan are level then you would not need mortar for leveling. Depending on the quality of the pan some do benefit from being set in a bed of wet mortar to provide support for the pan.

"How should I go about fastening it to the studs,..."
Drill holes through the flange and screw to the studs. They don't pre-drill the holes because only you know where your studs are located. I like to put the holes in the upper portion of the flange and use screws with a low profile head so it doesn't interfere with the surround.
