Re: Bad Alignment of Y Axes

Your problem is due to the necessary space to the left of the y-axis to
locate the ticks. Try, for example, eliminating the y-ticks:

Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 10}, Ticks -> {Automatic, None}];

Plot[1000Sin[x], {x, 0, 10}, Ticks -> {Automatic, None}];

With an additional space in the x-range, it is possible to accommodate the
y-ticks for both graphs keeping the alignment.

Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 10}, PlotRange -> {{-1.5, 10}, Automatic}];

Plot[1000Sin[x], {x, 0, 10}, PlotRange -> {{-1.5, 10}, Automatic}];
