Q: replace timing belt early if repairing head gasket leak? on 2003 Subaru Impreza

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
I have confirmed that I have an oil leak on the left head gasket (and smaller leak on the right side). There are 87,000 miles on the car. Does it make sense to get the timing belt + pump replaced now to avoid taking everything apart again at 105k miles, since I am getting the head gaskets fixed?

Absolutely change the timing belt ,belt idlers and oil seals now and avoid the duplication of labor in such a short period of time again.
