If you run 2×4s all the way to the floor they can transfer the vertical load of the shelves to the floor. But then you need to keep the unit from falling forward away from the wall. You could anchor the tops of the 2×4s to the wall or to the ceiling. Alternatively, you could drop supports from the ceiling down to the front edges of the shelves. For that matter, couldn’t you make a free-standing unit that fits your space?
