Scraping sound on sweeping right turns

There is a scraping sound when making a sweeping right turn, not really present in a regular right turn such as at a corner. Nothing on left hand turns. Nothing going straight ahead. Brakes feel fine, no squeaking or squealing. Seems to be from left front. Any ideas as to what I should look for when I take the wheel off?

Found it. It was from the left rear, not front. The bottom most portion of the rotor splash shield had somehow gotten bent in just enough so that there was barely daylight between it and the rotor. Bending it back out to the same clearance as the rest of the shield was the cure.
