Lally column rust

Hello all.  I have a lally column in my garage that holds up a steel I 
beam.  The bottom has some rust and corrosion.  This is from water, snow 
melt, salt, etc from cars parked in the garage.  I have some ideas to 
prevent future corrosion, but I'm not sure how to evaluate the current 
condition of the column.  Does anyone have any suggestions that don't 
involve large hammers and end with "if the I beam falls and crushes your 
head, then the column was bad".
