It is a big and expensive task. Unless there is a cause for concern, leave it alone. If the nuts are accessible, find out the troque spec and make sure they are properly torqued - with the keel blocked! - and go sailing.
If not, just go sailing. If there is cracking in the keel sump/bilge or the keel/hull joint is separating, then there may be reason to drop the keel. Otherwise, don't do it. Chances are it's properly seated, sealed, faired and painted now.
If it aint broke, don't use it. I mean don't fix it.
