I really do not want to remove the existing elbow from the drain pipe. It is original to my 72 year old house and I don't want to risk having to get into the wall if something breaks. The tail piece from the drain in the new sink is in a different location than the old one. the bottom of the tail piece is about 2-3/4 inch above the bottom of the drain pipe elbow. The center of the elbow is about 5-1/2 inches from the center of the tail piece. That means the J-trap is about 2 inches short of spanning the distance.The obvious solution is one of those corrugated pipe sections but they seem like an invitation to a clog. Looking at the HD web site I don't see plumbing parts that look like a solution. What do you recommend?
