1998 Impreza L

Default GM6 Mait.

'98, GM6, 2.2L NA, 54k

Extremely loud squealing upon start, through 1st and 2nd gear, in reverse and at either side of steering (far left /right ) all originating from my belts. Occurs in the morning, after a cold night, then disappears with normal driving.

I did a search on belt replacement but...

Question 1: Are there any prefered brands for belt replacement?

Q2: Is there an alternative to replace my belts entirely until I do a 60k mait? Lubrication that won't cause slip..

Q3:This seems to me a relatively straight forward DIY, any tricks or tips I should know before I dive in?

I would appreciate any other input.

Tightening them should help with the squeal. I don't know of a lube to remove the squeal, unless there is any truth to the redneck mechanic theory that hairspray will quiet them down. A belt is a belt in my book, so go to NAPA etc. and get a cheapy.
