A/C recharge issues

I have a 2003 Durango with the 4.7 engine, with the rear a/c. I recently recharged the a/c system with a can of A/C pro. However the front a/c still blows hot, while the rear is ice cold. Is there anyway to fix this myself? Is there another a/c charge port for the front? Or do I need to recharge the high pressure line as well? I know it's not the switch cause I checked that and the heater will kick on while still blowing ice cold a/c in the back vents and when slid back to a/c the heater kicks off and you can hear the compressor kick on. I'm a bit lost never had a vehicle with separate controls for the rear air system. Any help is appreciated.

I'd bet the blend door is stuck on the front.

Past that, I'd have to suggest taking it to a professional A/C shop.

And listen to them bitch about that stop-leak in the A/C Pro, which has in the past done such nice things as seal the "leaks" in the expansion valve, keeping ANY refrigerant from getting past it ...
