09 SSTC supension noise

Im getting this sound whenever i hit a medium to large sound bump. Sounds like scraping plastic on pavement but just not as loud. Looking under the car there is nothing hanging down. I know im not b***oming out. It sounds like it could be coming from the drivers side front area. Any one have any ideas.

its probably just your front bumper scraping on the ground. Even if your suspension isn't b***oming out, it will still scrape when going over steep bumps or dips. I have the same problem, a lot of roads in my area are poorly designed.
Just be careful not to hit those spots too hard, or you will crack your intercooler...

Ok, I confess I messed up my front chin once while backing out of a parallel park...the front overhang is much longer than I'm used to (my other car is a Mini) and I curbed it just in front of the tire...aaarrrrgggg!! Patched/repainted and now I'm always concious of that long nose...
