First call par(mfrow = c(2,2)) to get four plots in one panel
then plot your top figures using
plot(x, xaxt="n")#this will generate the plot withoput displaying the x axis
and then plot your bottom figures keeping the axis (without using xaxt="n")

You may want to fix the x axis limits to match between figures using the 
argument xlim=c(min,max) within plot()

More details in your note would have been helpful to give you better
