rubber coupling

How flexible are rubber couplings?? I have to replace a 6" stretch of pvc drain pipe that is very crooked and leaking from a coupler that wasn't glued properly. I'm putting in a pedestal sink and want all the connections straight. It's actually the t joint on the vent pipe the drain pipe comes off of that is cooked. The trap is on a 98 degree horizontal angle because of it. Doesn't look good. I really don't want to pull apart the wall and replace the T so instead I thought about using a rubber coupling to join the drain pipe to a piece of pvc that the elbow and trap are attached to. Will a rubber coupler bend the 8 degrees I need?? I have never used them before, especially to join two pvc pipes. thanks

8 degrees won't make or break a rubber coupling, as that is one of the attributes of the rubber. Just make sure they are clamped properly with stainless steel worm gear clamps.
