This is concerning a Double Sink.
Removal of old garbage disposal;
and replacement New Drain & Pipe.

Used BrandName:Master Plumber

(1)Standard 1 1/2" X 4" Extension Tube
(1)Standard 1 1/2" X 6" Extension Tube
(1)Standard 1 1/2" 90degree Elbow

All i Did; Was Remove a Garbage Disposer; and Put in a new Drain & Pipe.

Now, the water Drains Very Slowly Like its Vapor locked.I am .

To my Eye - the drain Pipes Still have the Proper degree of drop ??

Have you removed and checked the trap?
You also might try using a good non-caustic enzyme-based drain cleaner like DrainCare. Available at big box stores, etc.
It eats out all clogging organic gunk (grease, food particles, hair, etc.) overnight and then you just thoroughly flush the drain with very hot water.
Just follow the directions on the jug.
Good luck!
