How to outline the 1 1/2" PVC drain


I'm in the process of replacing some galvanized pipe with PVC, but I'm unsure of the best way to run the drain.

A shower drain of 1 1/2" galvanized pipe runs with a couple of smaller 1/8 bends and then makes a 90 degree bend before a vertical sink drain of 1 1/4" pipe is connected to this line , which then runs about 4 feet before it connects to the main stack.

I have replaced the 1 1/4" sink drain with a 1 1/2" PVC and I now need to connect the shower drain and the vertical sink drain.

Is it ok to "remove" the 1/8 bends and just run a straight 1 1/2" PVC then make it turn 90 degrees as the sink drain is connected?
Not sure if a 90 degree turn is too much because the sink drain is in the same spot. The drain is horizontal with a slope of probably 1/4" per foot.

A poor drawing is attached.
By the way, I cannot replace all of the galvanized pipe due to space issues.

Thanks!

I forgot to mention that I am installing a Cleanout on the very bottom of the Vertical Sink Drain that will attach right by the old cleanout.
I would think this would be ok...
Thanks for the reply!

Maybe for New code. My house (built in the 40's) has a 1 1/2" one on it as well.

Not completely done. I've finished everything with the sinks, which runs like a charm.
The drain from the tub-shower to the sinks was a little bit slow, so I decided to replace that entire run too....and I'm still working on it.

So far, so good I would have to say....I'll post some pictures of the final result
