Help moving kitchen sink


I'm moving my kitchen sink about 2' along the same wall where it currently sits. In moving the sink, I will need to add extensions for the drain as well as hot/cold water. I know it won't be a problem for me to buy longer flexible pipes for the hot/cold water but I am not sure about how to set up the drain extension. Should I fit the p pipe directly below the sink drain and then run an extension to the wall where the drain pipe is (keeping in mind to slope the pipe down), or should I connect the p pipe directly to the wall drain pipe and then run the extension up to the sink?

Any help would be much appreciated. Also if anyone knows of any diagrams online that show this set-up, that would be also helpful. Thanks again.

The right way to move the sink is to move the drain and water lines. The water lines will be relatively easy but the drain might be difficult. If you could provide a good description of the existing plumbing I am sure someone here can help you. Pictures would be really helpful.

correct you don't just extend the water lines with 2 feet of supply tube. also the drain needs to be relocated you can't just extend the tubular. the trap needs to be under the sink yes and you have distances from trap to vent that need to be maintained.
