Need to reroute sink trap


Hi, I've lurked here awhile, but this is my first post.

We are going from a double basin to a single basin on our 60" vanity. Would it be better to reroute the drainage so that the exit where the trap exists is directly under the sink (center of the vanity). Or can I just add 2 90 degree turns after the trap and use the current location of the waste pipe? Either right or left side

I dont have the vanity yet, but since it is setup for two basins I would have plenty of space.

Hope that all makes sense. I'm not fluent on the proper terms.

if you can move the drain close to the center of the sink I would do so.

Well, the drain would still be on the right. The two sinks exhaust make a "y" shape, but the bottom of the "y" where both drain out is on the right. So when you look at it I will either be routing the plumbing from the center to the right. The real question is if I can do that in front of the drywall or I should go behind.

The only sink plumbing I have installed has been just a straight shot from the trap to the drain pipe. All of the trap "kits" at the hardware store look like they are designed for the straight shot. How could I convert that to go to the right "18" of so?
