My car is almost @ 110,000 miles and I need to replace the timing belt. I've heard you should replace the water pump at the same time to avoid having to do it later. I replaced my water pump at 56,000 miles. Should I skip it or will it go again soon? Should I also replace the idlers, tensioners, drive belt and front engine seals like some people recommend?

yes to all. the tension of the new timing belt may cause failure of an old pump.

tensioners and pulleys are always recommended.
