According to Darth Vader: A 3-D Reconstruction Log it's true. I can't access the specific page, but it's the citation for the wiki on Vader's armor which says he had difficulty in raising his lightsaber to full height.

If a man loved slavery, if he loved usury, if he loved terrorism and all the trampled mire of materialistic politics, I have always found that he added to these affections the passion of a hatred of Poland. She could be judged in the light of that hatred; and the judgment has proved to be right."
