1993 Toyota 4Runner-Knocking noise-front end-cold weather

1993 Toyota 4-runner 185,000 miles. I have a knocking noise in my front drivers tire when outside temp. is below 10 degrees. When the outside temperature warms up the noise goes away. It is kind of a knocking, dragging noise when the wheel rotates. I had it in a shop but they couldn't hear the noise because it was warm then. They couldn't find anything wrong. What could be the cause?

    No there is no noise when jacked up & spinning.

    Have you tried a long pipe under tire while jacked up & give it a quick pry upward, to see if you can hear knock, or some play.

    If you jack that wheel up & spin it, do you get same noise?

This is Caused By the Grease in the Spindle Bearings Getting frozen. Get it Greased up really Well and you Might need to Repack the Bearings on this side to Stop this and Stop further Damage to the Spindle.

    You will not get it from doing this. You have to have Preassure on the Wheel for this to Happen.

Knocking noise in the air intake or do you mean a lifter noise,because you let it sit the lifter are not charged up or solidified,so you dont get adequate compression when you turn it over.if you have fuel and spark thats fine what about compression,noise from the air intake make me wonder if the timing belt is intacted.
