RIBase
Seals can be replaced, if you can get the top off the ram and there's no pitting on the ram itself.

Assuming you can get the seals out, they're likely pretty standard hydraulic oil seals. Local hydraulics shop should be able to source replacements at about a quarter the price of a chandler.
