Will buying just brake pads help my stopping performance or will it not matter unless I get rotors too. At this point it is a safety issue because even with my foot on the floor at 20mph I almost rear ended someone because people in this part of texas dont signal [chair] and my stock brakes kinda suck. So I want the cheapest solution which is buying the pads now and the rotors later.

Edit:
I suppose the brake pads section would have been a better location to post in. Sorry.

brake pads will make a big difference, you want to go w/ an aggressive pad like hawk or green stuff, you will feel a better initial bite to them!!

If you want real braking performance then go for
Performance Friction Brakes Ph: 800 521-8874 (E.U.A.)
More stopping power, it's quieter, no mushy pedal, lasts long then any other pad, increases rotor life.
I have done so far 59,499km+ or 36978miles + and I have 3-4mm left and still stopping strong.

As MLB said, go for green stuff pads. Great stuff from what I've heard.

EBC is alright but, it's not good enough.
The people in sales in PR at EBC have done a great job to sell there product.
Performance Friction Brakes are cheaper then EBC and 1 box gets you the full front set of pads as well.
59499km+ brake life and still going and I'm never going back EBC
