Firstly you haven't said hat colour of smoke is coming from rear is it black,white,or a blueish colour secondly have you checked suspension on rear possibilties are worn shox,broken springs,rear suspension bushes or rear drop links hope this is helpful.

Best I can tell this is a diesel truck? I know diesel, but
depending on age could be injectors, possibly Diesel injection pump hopefully not. The fuel is black? Someone is putting old engine lubricating oil in the fuel tank. It will increase the problem of black smoke. It may also have a bad smell because of the engine oil. If the turbo is not spinning properly (high pitched whine) the bearings may be bad and it's not getting enough air into the engine. This would also explain the smoke problem. Take it to a Diesel specialist!
what ISUZU what body? what year, and what country.
we cant guess all that?????? Injection system types vary by ALL THAT.
that can be lots of things
but the turbo , stops the smoke.. (adds air during times when old non turbo diesels smoked normally)
it could be a bad turbo or a leaking injectors
why not get a mech to service the car.? guessing will not work.
sometimes when the motors under enought pressure it will black smoke..so mabe the transmission is hanging up or something in first gear,,,i can rev my truck up all day and it wont black smoke when these a sever load o it and i hammer down it putts a bind on the motor and fuel is steadly being pump into the motor causing unburn fuel witch is black smoke..so maybe you want to go check the transmission or the fuel PUMP not the filters
