They break because they're plastic. They form the junction between the taillamp (which is mounted to the bumper) and the body. Here's the deal, the bumper is hard mounted to the frame. The body though sits on bushings which take some of the harshness out of the ride. The body moves on the bushings, the bumper doesn't. Since those fillers are plastic, as they age, they dry out and don't flex as much. Thus the cracking and eventual breakage.

I get my fillers from a company called Plastic Parts. They have reasonable prices and great parts. I believe they have what you are looking for. I think if you google them you should be able to get the website.
