Default Need help with lowering springs and TPMS

Okay so I just got my new wheels today for my 13 GS Fsport. Got 20" Niche M130's. Love em and they look great. First question. I had to get new TPMS sensors because I sold the stock ones with the stock wheels. Anyway, the valve stem on the sensor sticks out of its own hole on the rim (backside of rim) and the normal valve stem that you put air in comes out the front. Is it normal for the valve stem on the sensor to be outside the wheel? How would it monitor the pressure then? The instructions even showed that was how it was to be installed. Also my tire pressure does not display on the center monitor on the Guage cluster now. Do I need to have the sensors reprogrammed or the in car sensor? The sensors said they are supposed to not need programming as they learn the ECU or something like that. Any ideas or help? Second question. Since I have 20's now, my car sits a little higher and I want to lower it. I only want about a 1 inch drop tops and still stay similar to factory ride conditions. Any suggestions as to a good spring to get? I don't want Coilovers though. Just springs. Thanks for the help guys. I'll post pics soon.

The sensor can be in the back of the rim. You just use the stem in the front to inflate air.

And yes, the sensors have to be programmed to the car with a tool. Discount Tire can do it or you could take it to the dealer. Of course the dealer will charge a whole lot more.
