2001 Suburu Forester Timing belt

I intend to replace the timing belt on my 2001 Forester. When I was looking at parts catalogs I noticed that the belt is available by itself or in a kit that includes idlers, tensioner, etc.
I'm wondering if these parts are normally replaced along with the belt or if it's OK to just replace the belt?

Replace everything while you are in there. Why do most of the job over again in 6 months.

I checked and that's an interference engine, so a little extra care in assembly and alignment of timing marks, too.

I guess it does make sense to replace it all. Thanks for the advice..
