The low side port is in the right front corner of the engine compartment. It should have a either a blue or black plastic cap on it.

The A/C hose will only fit on the correct size line. On my 01 5.2L it has a black cap on the passenger side very close to the firewall. He High size fitting is just to the passenger side of
the radiator.
