Default I Have To Change Timing Chain. Is There Anything Else I Should Replace With It?

I took my 04' maxima SE to the mechanic's for a ticking noise that was getting worse and worse. Finally came to the conclusion it's the timing chain. He's going to get the whole timing chain kit with solenoid and gaskets. Is there anything else I should replace why it's all apart like this? How good are the cams? Should I replace those while it's apart? I have 181,000 miles on it, 3 year old rebuilt tranny and the miles are from driving long distances. I have kept extremely good care of the vehicle just to give you an idea of the shape it's in.

I would suggest checking your water pump (fins and bearings Seals) especially since youre in there, (and please post a pic of it) i did my timing chain about the same (Nissan changed guides) also theres a tensioner with a spring (might be worth a change too)

When you say fins, what exactly do you mean?

Fins, and bearing seals on the water pump?

Curious to know how that pump looked think mines may need changing, if you click GO ADVANCED at the bottom of the message on your screen it will give you more options and let you attach pics in the message (paper clip)
