You will need R134a, and a filler hose. Charge the system on the low pressure side, it should have a blue cap on the charge point.
Your filler hose will only fit the low pressure side, just in case the cap has been removed.

This is a little A/C 101. Follow the A/C lines. All A/C systems have a high pressure side and a low pressure side. The high pressure side is from the compressor to the condenser coil on the front of the vehicle to the evaporator coil in the dash. At the expansion valve in the evaporator the pressure drops. At the expansion valve the refrigerant changes from a liquid to a gas. This provides the cooling. The low pressure side is from the evaporator back to the compressor. Usually the high pressure lines are smaller than the low pressure (suction) lines.

If you reach up under the fender on the front passengers side in front of the front wheel, you will feel the reciever dryer(accumulator) assembly. The low side a/c port is located there(not the best place to have it in my opinion). The high side port is located where the front grill meets the upper radiator support.
I hope this helps you out. And also if you are looking for a leak, check the snout seal located under the outer clutch disc. Remove the compressor clutch disc and check for leakage. The compressor bodies themselves were also known for leaking.
