Default coolant leak

I have had a small coolant leak for a while now, usually had to add a qt or so of coolant every 3000 miles or so. Well it recently got way worse, added a gallon of coolant in the last week. I pressure tested the cooling system and the leak appears to be coming from the area where the water pump mates up to engine. After reading a few threads I believe that it will be easier to also replace the timing belt and everything else while im in there for the water pump. My question is where do you guys get your parts for the water pump and timing belt job? do you get all oem parts from the stealership or just the autozone branded stuff?

Buy quality stuff...you don't want to do this job twice. Use OEM or Gates and Dayco both put out complete kits that include the water pump...you will have to do a search to get the right part number for your specific PT.
