```Use an identical but  "invisible" FrameTick on each graph's axis that
is slightly wider than the widest actual tick label. For example,

fig1 = Plot[x, {x, 0, 10}, Frame -> True,
FrameTicks -> {Automatic,
Join[Table[{k, k}, {k, 0, 10, 2}],
Table[{k, "    "}, {k, 0, 10, 1}]], Automatic, Automatic},
DisplayFunction -> Identity];

fig2 = Plot[x^4, {x, 0, 10}, Frame -> True,
FrameTicks -> {Automatic,
Join[Table[{k, k}, {k, 0, 2000, 500}],
Table[{k, "    "}, {k, 0, 2100, 100}]], Automatic, Automatic},
DisplayFunction -> Identity];

Show[GraphicsArray[{{fig1}, {fig2}}], ImageSize -> {300, 388}];
