My Supra hasn't been used since last year and oddly the stearing is really stiff. It was fine when I used it last. What could be wrong?

Water has entered the cable. You can take it out and try to lube it or replace the cable.

How much do you estimate a new one would cost and how difficult is it to replace?
Thanks for info

its not to bad of a job, got the cable for 129.00. Tie a string or small rope to the old one and use it to fish the new cable back in.

Blake,
Try lubing the rudder first. My steering was getting stiff, I just gave it a few shots of grease and it's good as new.

Look in the back where the rudder connects to the cable. There should be a zerk fitting there.

Definately try to grease the rudder first. Like Joe's, mine was getting a little stiff. Greased it, and it's smooth as silk now.
