PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

I know that Smack Down does not remove the Flying type from a Pokemon, it just makes them susceptible to Ground type moves. In the case of Thundurus, after using Smack Down on him will a Ground type move be super effective due to the fact that he is part Electric type and no longer immune to the type, or will it just do normal damage?

Yes, Smack Down causes the Pokemon to become grounded, which makes it so that ground type moves will ignore the flying type's immunity to ground type moves. Since Thundurus is an electric Pokemon a ground type move is super effective if it hits.
