I'd agree with Stevie, do both unless you have low mileage. One correction though. The chains really don't break so much as stretch. When they stretch, the slop allows them to jump a cog or two, which results in bent valves, cracked pistons, broken rods, etc. So, if you suggest your mechanic scope it for cracks and the like, he may ask you why?
