A couple of things occur to me - The insert on my table saw has small setscrews to make sure that it sits level and firm on its little base pads - so I'd recommend that you look to see if there are any on yours - possibly filled with sawdust and gunk, if the rest of it is as dirty as you describe.

Alternately, you might be able to drill and tap holes and put in your own levelling setscrews to make it sit flush and pretty. Or maybe one of the set screws fell out, and just needs replacing.

The other question that crosses my mind is if your saw is vibrating too much for other reasons entirely. If you're going to be taking it apart to clean it up, then you should also look at all of the bearings, sheaves, belt and such to make sure they're in good shape. The source of the problem might just reveal itself in the process of taking it apart for cleaning.
