Smell

This has been going on for a while now, but I'm getting a brake binding smell except the brakes aren't binding car really stank (more around the rear) but all calipers were fine, not much heat in them. Help

I hope not. Funny thing is the clutch feels better than it used to.

That's because it is nicely warmed up.

It's pretty clean underneath. I'm wondering if it's the cat, do they have a lifespan?

Depends how it's been driven, running rich or plenty of cold starts / short trips can reduce the life. Tend to smell of rotting eggs however.
