Stabilizer maintenance

Can any KK 39 or 42 owners give me an idea as to what regular maintenance of the hydraulic stabilizers involves , and what the cost of that maintenance is ?

Did the question of stabilizer maintenance ever get answered?

I was quoted about a grand for seal replacement, which was the preventative maintenance recommended for the Wesmar stabilizers on the boat

My Naiads are due for seal replacement, a 3 yearly maintenance item. Estimate is under A$1000, to be done in mid January.
