It's crazy how much these OEM tensioners cost This is another maintenance job that my car needs. Should I also buy new chains when replacing the tensioner?

I fit new chains when I did mine. I think they were only 50 each so I just did them while I was in there. The whole job cost me about 1500. New tensioners, chains, gaskets, Camshaft oil seals and I also used new Camshaft bearing cap bolts. Not sure I really needed to do that but was unsure if they were "torque to yield" so replaced them just in case.
