They used to be in a nested menu under the shape builder tool. But now they are not there. There is still a live paint make command under the Object menu but that seems to be all. Did they take these tools away?

I find it quickly by using the Shape Builder Tool shortcut (Shift + M) so it shows up on the left side toolbar. Then, I click on that it so the other tools nested under the SBT show up in the flyout: You'll see Live Paint Bucket (shortcut is K), and also Live Paint Selection Tool (shortcut Shift + L). I hope this helps.
