A ton. I personally think WRX springs are a better compromise for the GC chassis. I lifted my 97 on wrx springs just a few months ago. I have pictures somewhere...

Fxt struts will give you ton of lift. But on a gc it will give you a ton a positive camber in the rear, and will give it a hod rod stance.
Just get 04 sti struts/ king springs with gpn top hats and gpn gc rear hats
