    it would kill alot of space for storage in cabinet
    and there is a 2 in gal nipple that comes out the wall and attaches to a heavy brass trap then the trap reduces to 1 1/2....keeps the trap tight to the back of cab

    How about raising the drain in the wall.
    Just inside the wall is there an elbow with the drain to the side or is there a tee with a vertical pipe.

    Not really a no-no on that side of the trap but not desireable either.

    The smoother the transition to the trap means better scouring of the pipe and fewer deposits or clogs. Also, the longer that dirty arm is, the more chance of a smelly drain. The trap is what stops sewer gasses from coming back up into the house, but the insides of the pipe don't stay pristine...the longer it is, the more crud that can accumulate and start to smell. Only that portion after the trap is blocked from smelling.

    drain

    It would work, but would look like a handyman job. The slip nut connections are not always the tightest, so you could find yourself putting it back together every so often when it gets bumped and falls apart. Why do you have so much stuff under the sink?

    stuff

    So do I, but they usually manage to fit it around the RO system, disposer, and sink trap. I wouldn't install a marginally bad drain, just so I could get more stuff in there.
