I want a diagram of my truck steering mechanism
The unit you are talking about is called an "intermediate shaft". I am intimately familiar with these..(I worked as a inspector over the departments that made the parts and then assembly- we made them for NUMEROUS manufacturers!!)
It has a small universal joint on each end.. the u-joint has bearings on all four corners, just like a drive shaft u-joint...the bearings are "staked" in and are almost impossible to get out without destroying the yoke(s)..replacing the I-Shaft is the most economical route... I WOULD NOT attempt to rebuild one!!
Rebuilding them is a painstaking,expensive(even if you can get the parts), and usually you end up breaking something..
The I-Shaft has a flat spring in the sliding joint to regulate the sliding stiffness when the body/engine/cab "flexes".. -- DO NOT separate the two pieces.. the rag coupling (the one at the bottom) is swedged (staked) in place so the shaft assembly will not separate in everyday driving..
.replacing the I-Shaft is the most economical route... I WOULD NOT attempt to rebuild one!!

My sons wants get a Logitech GT steering wheel to
I'm not sure if it will function without the pedals being connected. However, Most PC games allow you to customize controls. i.e. You will be able to set gas and brake to the buttons on the wheel. So the pedals will not be nessessary. So to answer your question, yes, but it depends on the game, not the steering wheel itself.
p.s. The above only applies if we are talking about PC games. Without the pedals, You will lose two methods of input which may need to be assigned elsewhere (like a keyboard). Consoles like the PS2 will not have this option.

Do you have a Logitech steering wheel, or a 2005 Mazda RX8 ?
Get the Mazda towed to a qualified repair-shop;
it is _NOT_ safe to drive it "as is",
given that your "power" steering is becoming "manual" steering, unpredictably.

I have the Logitech Driving Force wheel with
There should be a USB dongle which plugs into the USB port. This would be the 5V @ 100ma. The wheel itself has to be connected to the mains by a power supply which should have come with it. The power supply provides the 24V @ 750ma. The wheel communicates with the PS3 through the USB dongle.
