If it is a cast iron tub, a 12 lb. sledge hammer, goggles, gloves and a heavy drop cloth helps remove them. The drain will need to be increased to 2" and relocated, along with the vent line, shower faucet and water lines. A step can built with 2"X4"'s and a water proof "pan", (shower liner) needs to be manufactured onsite.
Good Luck. e-plumber
