Expanded volume but size remains the same in Finder

I am running Monterey and followed the other forum suggestions to workaround the bug to resize my volume after rebuilding it with larger capacity drives (went from 4x8TB to 4x18TB RAID-5). When running soft raid it shows the new size of 54 TB but in the finder it only shows my full capacity at 24TB. I'm attaching screenshots for reference.

SOFTRAID WRONG SIZE

Do you have a system that runs Big Sur or older?

6.2 does not resize volumes due to a problem in the X-code build environment. 6.0.5 works, but that does not run in Monterey.

I am running Monterey, but used 6.0.5 in Big Sur to do the resize to expand the volume. As the screenshot illustrates, softraid sees the larger volume at 54 TB but the finder still sees the old volume size.

Let me send you a command line tool that may work.
