Front end scraping noise

Alright, im a big dude (250lb) so this may not happen to every one but when i corner hard to the right I get a scraping noise, especially if i have a passenger w/ me. I havent removed the wheel to inspect yet, only had the car for a few weeks now but from what I can tell the noise is coming from the front valance scraping the ground, is this something that happens often? am I correct in my assumption? If so, what can I do to help. Sway bar upgrade? looking to upgrade sways and do the strut tower braces within the year anyways but if im looking at some sort of shock or strut replacement needed those mods will be put on the back burner for some COs. and if the front valance is scraping as much as ive seen in these few weeks is there something I can do to keep it from wearing out not wanting to have to replace this part, seems hard to find from what I can tell.

EDIT: NVM already found a replacement for under $40. not buying it though. Mine for now seems OK when I see a hole I will be replacing it though.
