Use FullGraphics to convert the axis and ticks into graphics primitives, 
then use Replace and Rule to adjust the positioning of the tick symbols.


myGraphics = Plot[ t, {t,-2,2},
Ticks->{Range[-5,5], Range[-5,5]},

	(FullGraphics@ myGraphics) /. {
		Text[ a_,b_,{c1_,0.}] -> Text[a,b,{-4 c1,0.}],
		Text[ a_,b_,{0.,c2_}] -> Text[a,b,{0.,-c2}]

If you are using a Mac, you might want to get Rotater--An excellent 
freeware for visualing wireframes in realtime, together with a 
mathematica to Rotater converter package. You can get them at
