Bathroom sink wall drain location

I've just finished painting and tiling the powder room in my house. I'm planning on installing a pedestal sink and last night, when dry fitting the sink, I noticed that the drain connection coming out of the wall is about an inch and a half too high. In order to attach the p-trap to the drain assembly, I'm going to have to cut approx 2" off of the tailpiece. Is this a problem or should I just bite the bullet and cut into the wall and relocate the drain to the correct height? My primary concern is that the drain popup lever might contact the tail of the p-trap assembly.

Thanks for your help!

You can cut the tailpiece, or buy a shorter one. Not a problem.
