How to move my kitchen sink just 6"?
 
I have a new countertop and need to move my existing kitchen sink just 6" to the left. The hot and cold water lines have enough play in them to move, so they aren't an issue. The sink is single bowl, no garbage disposal.

Can I purchase an extender or a longer piece of one of the PVC pipes and add it to/replace an existing shorter piece? I've never done this before, but I have a really good diagram of sink parts and can look the part(s) up, if I know the name of it.

And what are basin and spud wrenches? Will I need these and other tools for this task? I have an adjustable wrench and tons of other construction-type tools.

Many thanks for your advice, Jennshark

If you can post a pic of what the set-up is currently then we can guide you to a successful relocation.

A bason wrench is to remove a faucet after it's been installed.
A spud wrench is to install or remove a strainer in a sink.
The best way is to install the faucet before the sink goes in so no bason wrench is needed.
The same with the drain.
To add an extention in most cases all you need is what's called an 1-1/2 tail piece extention. any Lowes Home Depot, hardware store, will have it.
It's male on one end and a female on the other with a tapered plastic washer and a nut.

It's really thin PVC so be carefull when you cut it.
