In response to Re: Toilet waste pipe not in the right place... Help!
: I'm thinking it's excavation time. What should I expect to find down there? The one I pulled out from an upstairs toilet was made of lead and with a black abs plastic socket on the end.

: I'm thinking cut it off at the plastic pipe and replace with PVC using green adhesive??

: TIA

Here (NY) it would most likely be cast iron underground. Not sure what you have there but you would need to make the transition from piping materials correctly. There are special couplings available, what is allowed in your area could be answered by the building department. At least you're on the right path...
