rerouting pipes


Hey all. Attached is a picture of the current set up. The pipe closest to the camera is a bathroom sink drain and a vent pipe. The pipe furthest away is a toilet. I'd like to re-fit this so that the vertical pipe is a little closer to the wall. It's already closer at the bottom and I'm looking to do the same at the top. The closest pipe is Cast Iron connected with a fernco. I don't have access above the floor so I need to do the work here. Could I possibly switch the ABS 90 with a shorter 90? If not can anyone suggest any other ideas? Reconnected the toilet flange to the new pipe doesn't seem to be a challenge.

Thanks!

The 2 90's are about as tight as you can get. There is not a smaller radius 90

This is unfortunate, but thanks for confirming

use 45's commonly know as 1/8th bends. Use one street 45 and a regular 45 you can make any angle you need, then y and 1/8th bend into the main from the other fixture.
