You'll need to go to the Steam folder in the Programs directory for that. They probably didn't stay in place after you uninstalled.

Program Files/Steam/Steamapps/common/Skyrim/Data is where the files were located. If you manually installed you will be able to mix and match to get things back to the way things were. If you used NMM or Workshop you will likely be SOL.

If you installed manually you could check in with the ReadMe files for each mod to make sure the right files were in the right place. If you used an autoinstalled you probably don't have the ReadMe text. It is why I always do manual installs.
