A Lockheed L-1329-25 JetStar II, N787WB, impacted an airport sign and terrain following a loss of nose wheel steering during the landing roll on runway 13R at Austin-Robert Mueller Municipal Airport, Texas.
The pilot reported hearing a loud pop as the nose gear settled onto the runway during landing. The aircraft veered hard to the right and application of the left brake had no effect. The airplane skidded 978 feet before exiting the runway near taxiway Papa. The airplane struck a runway marker and subsequently collapsed the nose landing gear. The aircraft traveled an additional 120 feet before coming to rest.

Probable Cause:

The steering actuator fatigue failure resulting from inadequate procedure documentation for the manufacturing process.
