Sink Drain

I want to install a 13" deep (drop in) kitchen sink on a 36" high cabinet. The sink drain pipe was installed at 20" off the floor, leaving 16" for the sink (13"), drain (2") and tailpiece.

Will I be able to install the sink if I only have about 1" left for a tailpiece to go into the P trap, or must the drain pipe be lowered?

Sink Drain

Might be a challenge because the thicker hub portion of the tailpiece is longer than an inch.

Sink Drain

There are circumstances where I've had to use a regular ell instead of a street ell on the trap with a short piece of pipe between the u - part of the trap. And another time when I was desperate on a basement sink I (don't judge me please) a 3" x 6" drum trap. No disposer.
