    I didn't us GM belt tensioners but bought the best Orielly's had brand was Gates. Maybe its the belt alignment or could the idler pulley or alternator pulley be causing the squeak? Would anyone recommend a belt dressing I heard they it cause more issues.

    Do not use belt dressing. Replace the idler pulley and tensioner assy.
