Default noises coming from the front left suspension

Dear People,

it is wintertime in my country, and the temperature
is getting down.
Since some days I hear a nocking noise coming from the front left suspension.
It comes when I turn the wheel a little bit to the right
side, and it comes also when I"m parking my car.
I checked the six screws at the subframe, but they are allright.
When I push the front left tire with my leg, I can hear the
same nocking noise. But only one times, if I repeat pushing it, there is no noise till I drive the car a few meters again.
Can anyone help me please?

Probably looseness in the strut support bearing. I'd say these and the strut assemblies are good for 60 to 120K miles - and maybe more - on trouble in buying used with no history..
I had 2 to 3 mm play in my left side ball joint(it was really shot!), yet NO noise or handling problems whatsoever.
