Hmm - maybe here's the difference in vision.
I'm visualizing a 8' tall cabinet, sitting on the floor - walls of the cabinet start at the floor and go to the top - all weight on the top shelf goes straight down through the walls to the floor.<?i>

Ahhhhhh... Then they COULD be free standing and not connected to the wall at all. You just want the attachment to the wall to keep them in place and to substitute for a rear cabinet wall, right? Then I suggest just a couple of strategically located blocks instead of full rectangular frames, but the principle is the same. Tapcon a couple blocks of wood to the wall, slide your cabinet up to the wall over the blocks, then screw/nail the rear cabinet edge to the blocks.
