Need to check the high side too in order to see how well the compressor is doing its job, among other things, as well as to detect other possible issues.

See if you can do a loan a tool on A/C gauge set.
Be on the lookout for green dye. It fluoresces in uv light and is used for leak detection. It stains whatever it touches, including you.
The only people doing loan a tool for it have AC problems so eventually someone gets dye everywhere.
