Installing a pedestal lav

Replacing a 22-yr old wall hung lav with a pedestal model. Does anyone have a link to some installation
instructions? (preferable ILLUSTRATED instructions...I do good with pictures!!!) Found a nice set of instructions
for intalling the toilet at, but they had no pedestal instructions. (btw, the instructions that came with
the ped. & sink (American Std) are laughable. On a piece of paper about 4x6 and they basically say, if you don't know
how to do this you're an idiot). So, OK I'm an idiot.


1) The old wall hung bracket was 31" from the floor. The new sink will sit approx 34" from the floor. What do
I use to hang the new sink if there is no stud behind the wall?

2) How do you balance/shim the sink & ped?

3) The drain/trap for the old sink is about 1" - 1 1/2" "short" of where the drain on the new sink will be.
(sounds like I need a plumber!!!....or a father-in-law who's in town!!!) What's involved in putting in a longer
pipe extension from the wall?

I know, I know. I am the home owner that has plumbers dreaming of that new bass boat!!!

Thanks for any feedback.
